In conversation screening with filmmaker Babette Mangolte and Ian White, Adjunct Film Curator, Whitechapel.
Presented in association with LUX.

An experimental film which acts out the view of a photographer on her subjects and the city she lives in, New York. The film uses a technique of subjective camera, to give to the spectator an active sense of the problematics in the relation of camera to subject, photographing to photographed.
A going back and forth between observation and sentiment or imagination, the film is a self-portrait of the photographer-filmmaker during the years 1976-1977.' Babette Mangolte, March 1978.

Presented in association with John Hansard Gallery, Southampton as part of the exhibition Live Art on Camera, 18 September - 10 November which includes other work by Babette Mangolte.
