Nancy Buchanan: Lines of Enquiry

Fnially Nancy Buchanan from Calart will screen her film  *Flight; Let the Women Speak 2009; 5’
Although Kurdistan (autonomous region of northern Iraq) is in many ways very progressive, and women fill many important legislative positions, patriarchal attitudes remain. Honor killings persist and women widowed during Saddam Hussein’s campaign against the Kurds are often shunned. Video was shot during two visits to the region, and includes documentation of a moving performance by UK artist Anne Bean.. Soraya Fallah and Cklara Moradian were proudly  part of this project  for translation and the connections.
Nancy Buchanan: Lines of Enquiry
February 11

Since the early 1970s, Nancy Buchanan’s work in video has been marked by her consistent exploration of the spaces between political essay, poetry and performance. This screening presents an overview of her remarkable career, starting with early videos that disrupt representational stereotypes through feminist critique, such as Primary and Secondary Spectres (1989), to her polemics of the 1980s and 1990s that address such issues as real estate speculation and U.S. interventionism in Latin America, including Sightlines (1989) and American Dream #7 (1991). Other pieces combine political awareness with dry humor (Pursed, 2003–4, Horses, 2009), as well as insightful explorations of cultures at times of momentous changes, such as her collaboration with Sandra Agalidi, Windows and Mirrors (1995), shot in Romania.
