Ciné Lumière is offering two screenings of works by feminist filmmakers and artists from France and Belgium, giving a perspective of Women in Revolt as shaped on the continent in the same time period as the UK activists of the 1970s and 1980s.

The film programme Through a Radical Lens takes up the themes of the current Tate Britain exhibition Women in Revolt: Art and Activism in the UK 1970-1990 through the film and videos practices of feminist artists then and now. The screenings and conversations revisit urgencies of the 1970s and 1980s which are still current today.

Through a Radical Lens is programmed by Lucy Reynolds, with curatorial contributions from Club des Femmes, Karen di Franco for Chelsea Space, Rachel Garfield and Will Fowler at BFI Southbank, and the team at Ciné Lumière.

2pm ‘About Saute ma ville’ (1968)

Dir. Chantal Akerman, with Chantal Akerman, Belgium, 1968, 12 mins

Chantal Akerman’s first film is a 12-minute tragicomic and unmissable critique of domestic life and the literal explosion of the so-called ‘feminine universe’.

4.30pm Maso and Miso Go Boating + S.C.U.M Manifesto

Dir. Les Insoumuses (Carole Roussopoulos, Delphine Seyrig, Nadja Ringart, Ioana Wieder), France 1967, 28 mins

S.C.U.M. Manifesto stages a reading of the eponymous 1967 work. As news images of male-dominated world events flicker across the television screen, Delphine Seyrig disseminates Valerie Solanas’s theses on men – who, according to the manifesto, are both biologically incomplete and driven by vagina envy.
