Wednesday July 2nd
A screening and discussion of William Greaves’ experiment in expanded Cinema Verité Symbiopsychotaxiplasm
. In this film-within-a-film director Greaves dared to challenge and draw attention to the accepted rules of cinema. The director pursues his own agenda and draws out the growing conf lict and chaos accompanied by moments of humor that happen off camera. The result is a film with multiple levels of reality that reveals, and comments upon, the creative process.

PUBLIC PROGRAMME WEEK 5:
‘RICERCHE: THREE’ (2013) BY SHARON HAYES
Wednesday July 23rd
(2013) by Sharon Hayes presented with clips from Comizi d’Amore
(1963) by Pier Paolo Pasolini, introduced by Isla Leaver-Yap. Hayes uses Pasolini’s film, Comizi d’Amore (Love Meetings) as the guidepost for a contemporary inquiry into the “sexual problem” in the United States in 2013. While the political climate in post-war Italy in 1963 was deeply distinct from that of the United States in 2013, both were sites in which a persistent political condition in which so-called value-based policy and ideology act out symptomatically to cover up underlying economic and political vulnerabilities. Using the container of an all-women’s college (with only 47 such institutions remaining in the US), Ricerche: Three
attempts to address the contradiction that such gender-segregated institutions are “behind” and “ahead” of the rest of society.
PUBLIC PROGRAMME WEEK 6:
Wednesday July 30th
Screening and discussion following her time spent running workshops at the Summer School. Olivia Plender, alongside invited speakers, will present and discuss a selection of video works that have influenced or are representative of her current research interests.
