Believe it or not, I initially learned that avant-garde feminist filmmaker Su Friedrich is giving a talk at my workplace, Sarah Lawrence College, from a garbage can. Well, to be completely honest, I think it was a recycling can, and it was being used as a temporary bulletin board to advertise an exciting presentation by Friedrich called “How to Drag Your Private Life Kicking and Screaming into the Public: Looking back at thirty-two yeras of filmmaking.”
The presentation is free and open to anyone and will be happening this Thursday, Nov. 10th, from 5:30-7:30PM in Donnelley Lecture Hall in the Heimbold Visual Arts Center. For anyone located in NYC who is unsure that they want to make the train trip out to Westchester- IT WILL BE VERY WORTH IT! If you don’t believe me just watch Hide and Seek.
See you there- I’ll be in the front row with a smile and a women writer’s mug.
