From Moscow, award-winning filmmaker and curator Ekaterina Selenkina presents the work of female filmmakers from Russia and the Russian diaspora to introduce US audiences to new radical voices. The program involves reflections on the Soviet past and its traces in the present, on the territorial belonging and exile, and on how patriarchy, militarism, borders, and tourism affect people and especially women. At times humorous, at times achingly personal, these films map out the complicated geographical, political, and psychological landscape a post-Soviet person inhabits. The evening includes works by Sasha Litvintseva, Polina Kanis, Vladlena Sandu, and Anya Tsyrlina. Their experimental films and installations have shown at Berlinale, IFF Rotterdam, Venice Biennale, Lincoln Center’s Art of the Real, Cinema du Réel, among many others.

In person via Zoom: curator Ekaterina Selenkina; filmmakers TBA.
