WOMEN ON THE EDGE OF TIME - Arthouse Austrian Feminist Sci-Fi anyone?

While Gabriel is organising a group to see the excellent From Up On Poppy Hill over in Soho from 6, for those who fancy something different the Horse Hospital are running a two day Feminist SF Festival on Friday 2nd & Sat 3rd August. Saturday looks like the best but they do a weekend pass which is cheaper than getting tickets for both Saturdays events.

Anyone interested in going along please post a comment about which one you are going to and what time to meet at.

Weekend Pass - £12

6:30pm - FLAMING EARS - £5.00 in advance/£6.50 on the Door

Angela Hans Scheirl, Ursula Pürrer, and Dietmar Schipek – Austria, 1991, 84 mins

A vengeful comic book artist, a red rubber suit wearing alien and a pyromaniac performance artist play out a story of love and revenge in the lesbian populated future city of Ache. This violent and sexual anti-romantic tale takes cues from the early short films of Ursula Pürrer and Angela Hans Schier in its playfulness and provocation. Blown up from super-8, the grainy texture and saturated colours add to its DIY and experimental appeal and heighten the artificiality of this crumbling fantasy world.

“Imagine the film that J.G. Ballard might have made if he’d been born an Austrian dyke.” B. Ruby Rich San Francisco Weekly

9:00pm - INVISIBLE ADVERSARIES - £5.00 in advance/£6.50 on the Door

Valie Export – Austria, 1977, 112 mins

In the debris of a civilization in decline and the painful disintegration of a relationship Anna’s grasp on reality is flagging rapidly. Determined that extra-terrestrials are controlling the minds of those that surround her, increasing the violence and mobilizing destruction Anna’s interior and material worlds collide with irrationality and paranoia. Simultaneously a sensitively reflexive film about art and being an artist and a radical essay on the self, the image and sexual politics.

“Anna’s schizophrenia is reflected in the juxtapositions of long movie camera takes with violently edited montages: private with public spaces; black & white with colour, still photographs with video, ear splitting sounds with disruptive camera angles.” Artforum, Nov. 1980

    I may try to attend the later Saturday showings. It sounds brilliant. I want to see the Ghibli film too, but I know I can do that in my own time with or without meetup. This sounds a bit different.

    Hey! This sound totally amazing! :)
    Me and my partner would love to come to come to the 6:30pm one but we have a manic busy day on Saturday and a dinner afterwards... So we'll all we can to get the "at the door" tickets and join you!
