The Song of the Shirt

Film Just in case you have the time, at Tate Liverpool next Tuesday, Laura "The Gaze" Mulvey is leading a day long seminar about radical filmmaking.
"Join us for a day of films and discussions.

"Made at the height of the radical 1970s, The Song of the Shirt (1979) is a poetic black and white feature film about women, sexuality, politics, music, early photography and fashion. Set in 1840s Spitalfields, London, the film looks at both the romance and the fearful class hysteria that surrounded the thousands of women who arrived in the city to work in the clothing industry. The film combines past and contemporary images to portray the radical potential of these women and their age.

"The screening is followed by a seminar focusing on the question: What insights can this radical filmmaking – both style and practice – offer the new digital generation of artists and filmmakers?"
