Three short, award-winning films by Elisabeth Subrin are presented and discussed in person by the artist:
Maria Schneider, 1983, featuring internationally renowned actresses Manal Issa, Aïssa Maïga, and Isabel Sandoval, each recreating a 1983 French TV interview with actor Maria Schneider about gender disparity and abuse in the film industry (2022, 25 minutes);
Sweet Ruin, an experimental adaptation of Michelangelo Antonioni’s unrealized script from the late 1960s, Technically Sweet (2008, 10 minutes); and
The Fancy, a speculative work that explores the life of Francesca Woodman, evoked by the published catalogues of and about her photographs (2000, 35 minutes).
“Subrin is known for her restagings of films and figures that switch out the background for the foreground, illuminating the ideologies of different eras and bringing the past fully into the present that it haunts” – B. Ruby Rich.
