Post-Patriarchy? New Acquisitions Screening

Emilie Crewe, Valentina Alvarados Matos, Hardeep Pandhal, Paige Smith, Sydney Southam

Thu, Jun 13, 2019

For Video Out’s latest call-for submissions, moving-image makers were invited to submit works that responded to the idea of a post-patriarchal present-future.  It’s taken the work of many for so long to reach our current moment, and if we’ve learned anything, hopefully it’s that with deconstruction comes the need to rebuild.
