Films by Chick Strand at OXY

Films by Chick Strand
Saturday  Oct 3,  5-7 in J200
A Former Oxy film professor for 24 years and landmark avant-garde filmmaker.  We will be screening some of her 16 mm films, which is quite an undertaking these days now that Oxy has gone digital.  Her work is beautiful, fluid, experimental, and Soft Fiction (1979) is particularly known for its focus on women’s sexuality, positive and negative (straight women and nothing sexual shown on screen).  

There will be a reception following the screening. The event is free, open to the public, and created in collaboration with LA Filmforum.
