Breaking the Frame
(Marielle Nitoslawska, 2012, 100 min.)

This documentary profiles Carolee Schneemann, a pioneer of performance, body art, and avant-garde cinema, as well as a participant in Moorman’s festivals. Schneeman’s own collaged and diaristic approach to cinema is mirrored in Nitoslawska’s intimate portrait of her. With an introduction and Q & A by B. Ruby Rich, professor Social Documentation Program and Film & Digital Media Department, UC Santa Cruz.

Co-sponsored by NYU’s Department of Cinema Studies (TSOA) and Grey Art Gallery.
