A series of retrospective events celebrating avant-garde and feminist filmmaking in the 1970s. Collaboration and collectivism in the 1970s – a special retrospective screening.

First screened at EIFF in 1976, Borden’s multi-layered film within a film is the highlight of this year’s retrospective focus on the 1970s. It follows the activities of a women’s group, whose political ideals are unraveled and questioned throughout the process of collaboration. The film’s self-reflexive techniques keep the viewer guessing about the relationship between the real and the staged, dismantling the objective foundations of the documentary form. A powerful and rarely seen classic of feminist filmmaking.
