VISIONS & VOICES: Forgotten Films From Cinemas Women Directors
VISIONS & VOICES: Forgotten Films From Cinemas Women Directors, samples a variety of short films from Pioneers: First Women Filmmakers, a collection of historical films recently curated by Kino Lorber distribution company and the Library of Congress.
By diving into this mysteriously missing chapter in cinematic history, VISIONS & VOICES aims to provide context for women's roles in the film industry as directors to show how they not only figured prominently at one time but dominated this creative position. Women directors also frequently tackled subjects that became forbidden once the motion picture code came into existence.
The four-part series will include a variety of features and short films ranging from slapstick comedies to melodramas and thrillers--all from female directors. The first of these will be The Blot from 1921 and Suspense from 1913 both by Lois Weber to be shown at 2 p.m., Sunday, December 2 at the Studio Theatre in the Sylvia Center for the Arts, 205 Prospect Street, Bellingham. Audience members will be invited to participate in a Q&A event after each film. Films for subsequent showings will be announced and will take place at the following locations and times:
SUNDAY, JANUARY 6: Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St., Bellingham 2 p.m.
(tickets for the Mount Baker Theatre event must be purchased at https://mountbakertheatre.com)
