films from Cinenova
As part of Moot Points : Excercises in Self-Organisation, Discourse and Collaboration, four screenings chosen from the Cinenova archive (uk women’s film and video distributor and archive) are scheculed over the next few weeks at Transmission Gallery.
The first was on Friday just past – sorry, should have posted this up earlier in the week! but there are three more to come:
Emma Hedditch has invited a selection of individuals and organisations in Glasgow to select and present films from the Cinenova archive of women’s film and video to be screened at Transmissions Gallery on four different occasions during November.
Rebecca Gordon Nesbitt, 14th November.
Having worked for more than a decade in the field of visual art, Rebecca Gordon Nesbitt undertook an MRes in Social Research at the University of Strathclyde, for which she continued her research into the privatisation of culture and the role of contemporary art in challenging the status quo. Her PhD, looking at cultural policy in post-revolutionary Cuba, seeks to examine how critical practice can be encouraged, or stifled, by state interventions.
Dr. Maud Bracke, 22th of November. Lecturer in Modern European History at Glasgow University.
Maud has recently undertaken research into an Italian educational initiative known as The 150 Hours Courses. This research will inform the presentation Maud will make at Transmission preceding her film selection.
The Glasgow Women’s Library, 29th of November.
‘Glasgow Women’s Library is a vibrant information hub housing a lending library, archive collections and contemporary and historical artefacts relating to women’s lives, histories and achievements. It delivers an innovative Lifelong Learning Programme, an Adult Literacy and Numeracy Project and a dedicated Black and Minority Ethnic Women’s Project.’
Charlotte Prodger, Sunday the 30th of November.
Charlotte Prodger graduated from Goldsmiths College in 2001 and is now an MFA student in Glasgow School of Art. She writes stories and makes films. Her films play with the mechanical materiality of film and the tactility of object-based rituals. She also plays music with Muscles of Joy.
