AboutOn the occasion of the Invisible Mend exhibition, LUX Salon takes the opportunity to screen Elizabeth Subrin's SHULIE in a female only study salon.
Subrin resurrected a little-known 1967 documentary portrait of a young Chicago art student, Shulamith Firestone, who a few years later would become a notable figure in Second Wave feminism and the author of the radical 1970 manifesto, The Dialectic of Sex: The Case for Feminist Revolution. Subrin's version re-creates the original, shot for shot, and in the process arcs 40 years of feminisim. Using the film as a catalyst to form a discussion group we will look at the issues that resonate through the film; about identity, the construction of histories and how they reflect on the current interest in feminist work and assess the significance. Facilitated by Jackie Holt and Emma Hedditch.
