Date: Sunday, April 10, 2022, 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.
Location: THE WEX FILM/VIDEO THEATER
We’re thrilled to welcome Los Angeles–based filmmaker and curator Courtney Stephens to the Wex for this hybrid event that combines archival women’s travel films and live performance. Stephens examines women’s history and gender roles within cinema from the 1920s to the 1950s and relates this investigation to her own life as a traveler and filmmaker through a live voiceover on stage. Her nonfiction and experimental films address the shape of language, historical geography, and women’s lives. (total program time: 120 mins., DCP)
Stick around after the screening for a conversation with the filmmaker! Stephens’s past presentations at the center include her Wex-supported documentary The American Sector, codirected with Pacho Velez, and her experimental Super 8 documentary Perfect Fifths, a portrait of performer and piano tuner JJJJJerome Ellis.
