People who have saved this event:


An exhibition, presented by Cinenova, of three videos produced by Women & the Law Collective in 1986. These will be shown alongside a programme of talks and screenings exploring the potential for film as a collective tool against state systems of oppression and discrimination.


Cinenova is a volunteer run feminist film and video distributor currently based at LUX, Waterlow Park. Across the four weeks Cinenova will exhibit three films attributed to Women & the Law Collective: Time and Time Again with Nina Ward, Women in Prison & the Black Female Prisoner's Scheme, Who Takes the Rap - Immigration with Lai Ngan Walsh and The Life and Hard Times of Susie P Winklepicker with Deborah Hall. This incredible body of work, all produced in the space of one year, explored the state of the UK legal system and its means of control through prisons, immigration law and forced economic dependency to maintain race, class, and gender hierarchies. The films will each be shown for one week each in the exhibition space (see timings below) outside of this the works can be viewed on a monitor in the LUX library.

Starting from the act of exhibiting the three films as a working process that aims to join up with conversations taking place in the UK today, we ask how these collective projects can be used in response to, and alongside, renewed calls for fundamental change? The exhibition will include a programme of public events and meetings that relate to both specific and wider topics: the closing down of HM Prison Holloway and those fighting for the 8-acre site to be used for collective good, the work and resistance around the prison industrial complex, UK detention centres and the continuing alterations to the British welfare state.

In addition Cinenova will present related ephemera, archival materials and films from the Cinenova collection connected to the issues at stake.
