Monday evening, February 24, 2014 at 7pm: Artist Talk
introduced by Professor B. Ruby Rich

Co-Sponsored by Porter College, Film + Digital Media Visiting Artist Series, and the Center for Documentary Arts and Research (CDAR)

Filmmaker Elisabeth Subrin discusses recent projects in film, video, and installation, as well as two current works-in-progress, a feature-length narrative film, A Woman A Part, starring Maggie Siff (Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy) and Damage Report, an installation commissioned by the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia.

Subrin’s work seeks intersections between history and subjectivity, investigating the nature and poetics of psychological “disorder,” female representation, and the impact of recent social and political history on contemporary life and consciousness.
