CFAC presents Shulie (Dir. Elisabeth Subrin, 1997)
Thursday 29th April 2021, 7-8:30pm (online)
The Centre for Film and Aesthetic Cultures (CFAC) at the University of Reading is delighted to host an online screening of Shulie, a shot-by-shot remake of an obscure 1967 documentary on Shulamith Firestone, an American art student who was on the cusp of becoming a major figure within the newly resurgent women’s movement with her 1970 work, The Dialectic of Sex. Director Elisabeth Subrin will join feminist scholars Natalie Thomlinson and Rachel Garfield in conversation after the screening to discuss the legacy of both the film and of Firestone. Called ‘a thing of wonder’ by the New Yorker, Shulie raises fascinating questions about the sometimes difficult place of the feminist past in the feminist present that are still central today, and, in the director’s own words, seeks to ‘investigate the mythos and residue of the late 60s’.
