Heroines of Handcrafted Cinema – programmed by Kelly Gallagher


Headroom is proud to present a program curated by Kelly Gallagher, a graduate student in the Department of Cinematic Arts. Kelly will present “The Heroines of Handcrafted Cinema”, a program of handmade films, all crafted by women exploring and implementing tactile and tangible forms of cinema-making. Filmmaker and artist Charlotte Taylor, who received her MFA from the Department of Cinema and Comparative Literature at UIowa, will be in attendance.

WHEN: Saturday, April 12, 2014  –  8:00pm



The heroines of “handcrafted” cinema animate moving images that are literally created by their own hands — images that are crafted, painted, torn up, spit up, chewed out, glittered up, collaged, drawn, painted, puppeteered, sewn, hand-processed, bleached, scratched, made with love, made with hate, and made with everything in between. Utilizing handcrafted cinema, these filmmakers make labor visible and invite spectators to become producers by making their filmmaking processes, tools, and materials viscerally transparent. Come join us for an evening of handmade cinematic fun! (KG)
