Additional Information

A pivotal figure in Latin American experimental cinema, Narcisa Hirsch—a German émigré raised in Argentina—first focused on painting, then performances and happenings, before making a crucial move to film.

These six short films are meditations on female independence, eroticism, violence, and mortality, forming an important intervention into the history of structural and experimental film.

Programmed by Federico Windhausen. (dir. Narcisa Hirsch, 57 min.)

This program is part of the Los Angeles Filmforum series Ism Ism Ism: Experimental Cinema in Latin America, part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.

Major support is provided through grants from the Getty Foundation.

Additional support provided by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
