07March9:00 pm11:15 pmWomen’s March: CUT Female Short Films Screening

Event Details

In light of Women’s march, CUT is devoting March (yes yes, we know, very clever) to films by female directors about experiences of womanhood! This time, we will screen short films varying in duration, time period and location. The programme is: Meshes of the Afternoon (Maya Deren, 1943) – a surreal avant-garde classic that is as enigmatic as it is personal and, of course, unbelievably significant! Wasp (Andrea Arnold, 2003) – a playful and proud story of a single mother of four adorable girls who tries her best to go on a date with an old ex-boyfriend. Teat Beat of Sex (Signe Baumane, 2010) – a funny, confessional and explicit animated short about female sexuality! Kiss Me (Lara Gissing, 2018) – a story about a couple on a camping trip in Australia whose relationship seems a bit off from the very start. Daisies (Věra Chytilová, 1966) – our longest pick is a milestone in Czech New Wave cinema, this feminist satire follows two teenage girls who commit increasingly bizarre pranks. The film was initially banned and the director not allowed to make films in Czechoslovakia for more than a decade. Total running time is around 130 minutes and, as always, popcorn will be provided! Love, CUT
