Soft Fiction

Dir. Chick Strand
1979, 56min, 16mm

 

Avant-garde innovator Chick Strand and her female subjects/collaborators rewrite the rules of documentary to create a distinctly feminine form of expression. Sensuously impressionistic images are interwoven with the testimonies of five women who freely discuss issues of desire, sexuality, pain, trauma, and resilience.

 
Free, White and 21

Dir. Howardena Pindell
1980, 12min, digital

 

Multimedia artist Howardena Pindell assumes the identity of a blonde white woman to discuss the racism—both institutional and casual—she has experienced as a black woman throughout her life in this powerfully personal video essay, which critiques the limitations of white feminism.
