Film About a Woman Who...

8/04/17, 14:00 - 16:00

The British Museum, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG

This event is part of the British Academy's Behind The Camera series.


Choreographer and performer Yvonne Rainer uses traditional images of women to portray the inner life of a dissatisfied and angry woman.


Emerging from the New York avant-garde scene, and questioning the relationship between audience and performer, as she had done in her dance works, Rainer's second feature offers a provocative insight into early 1970s feminism.


1974, 90 minutes, Cert. TBC


Curated and introduced by:
Professor Ian Christie FBA, Birkbeck College, University of London.


Presented in collaboration with the British Museum


Ticket price: £3, £2 (Concessions)
