Lis Rhodes - Volume One
Lis Rhodes (UK) is an avant-garde filmmaker and artist. While firmly rooted in the history of experimental film, her films cross into performance, photography, writing and political analysis. Early ‘expanded’ works such as Light Music (1975) fused performance and multi-screen projection with an exploration of the visual qualities of sound. Her analysis of broader political and social questions can be traced to her later films, which combine formal rigour with a passionate critique of issues from nuclear power to domestic violence. As an active campaigner for women’s rights. “Light Reading”-1975, “Pictures on Pink Paper”-1982 and “Cold Draft”-1988 are the three film featured on this DVD.
