Sat, 8 June 2019, 6.30pm, Sheffield Doc/Fest
For this year’s Sheffield Doc/Fest, Pavilion’s Art School for Rebel Girls collective have selected a programme of short films by women which explore different ideas of the self image. The screening forms part of Focus/Shapes That Move, Doc/Fest’s special focus on feminist film collectives in Britain from the 1970s onwards.
Art Schools for Rebel Girls is a collective of young women in Leeds aged 13-15 years who meet on a regular basis to make art together. Members of the group met and watched over 30 films by artists and collectives working from the 1970s to present; this programme was put together based on their responses.
Suitable for people aged 13 and up.
Elspeth, Carmen, Bella, Nina, Kerstin, Alice, Niki, Roshni, Tessy, Elise, Tara, Edie.
