Past Films

  • Alice Guy-Blaché, Meredith Monk, and Actresses Grace Cunard and Francine Everett

    • Tuesday, February 21 19:30

    This lively program skips across genres and eras, from a domestic comedy by Alice Guy-Blaché, arguably the first director of a narrative film, to an evocation of Ellis Island by composer/choreographer/filmmaker Meredith Monk, and from a heist caper starring "Queen of the Silents" Grace Cunard to a freewheeling African-American independent feature with Francine Everett, an actress who defied stereotype.

  • Storm de Hirsh and Maya Deren

    • Tuesday, February 7 19:30

    Avant-garde pioneer Maya Deren's study of Haitian voodoo, Divine Horsemen: The Living Gods of Haiti. Plus two "cine poems" by Storm de Hirsh, a germinal figure in the New American Cinema since the sixties.

  • Mary Ellen Bute, Gunvor Nelson, and The Women's Film

    • Tuesday, January 24 19:30

    Delightful abstract musical animation by Mary Ellen Bute, an intricately layered film by Gunvor Nelson, and a trailblazing 1971 feminist documentary in the first of three programs from WFPF.
