Screening: Video Visions -

Added on by Kym Maxwell.

'Nasa and Moonglow' will be presented at the Channels Festival, Video Visions program Friday September 25th at ACMI from 7:30pm.

This four minute video was developed in conversation with Claire Lambe appropriates the pre-code film 'Just Call Me Savage' (1932), starring 'IT' girl Clara Bow. The footage accentuates the unusual behaviours and dialogue of characters Nasaand Moonglow and utilises simple double screen editing techniques to draw attention to Nasa and actress Clara Bow and she performs a hysterical overwhelmed state. Within the context of feminist critique her rage offers the vice of ownership over hysteria in light of the provocations of her father and Moonglow the male victim of her juvenile behaviour.
