To celebrate the birthday of filmmaker, teacher and cultural force Chick Strand (Dec. 3), who passed away ten years ago, REDCAT has organized a program of rarely seen masterworks spanning 40 years. Hailed for her profoundly expressive voice, Strand’s eye was unsurpassed in its complex and empathetic responses to people and their worlds, whether in California, Mexico or her imagination. Strand’s films defy categorization, moving between intimate portraits and intuitive ethnographies, lush poetic metaphor and anecdotal storytelling, subtly recorded images, astonishing found footage and haunting portrayals of women alone and within families. Join us in celebrating one of Los Angeles’ great artists. 

Funded in part by the Ostrovsky Family Fund. Curated by Betzy Bromberg with Steve Anker and Bérénice Reynaud, as part of the Jack H. Skirball Series.
