China Girls in Experimental Film

When: Tue., March 29, 7-9 p.m. 2016

The “China Girl,” is a type of reference image used in commercial film laboratories since the late 1920s and continuing in limited used today. This program gathers a selection of 16mm experimental films considering the China Girl from various perspectives, including that of celluloid materiality, behind-the-scenes workings of the film industry, and the marginal role of women in film history. Screening will be preceded by an introduction by film scholar and Humanities Center fellow Genevieve Yue.
