We commemorate 40 years of the Feminist Library and of Laura Mulvey's seminal essay 'Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema'. Inspired by Laura Mulvey's essay, the afternoon film screening takes the main elements of Mulvey's theory and explores their relevance to today's perception and depiction of women on screen. Participating artists show a piece of work that reflects this.
