Vivienne Dick - Vivienne Dick
Irish born Vivienne Dick was in America (in 1975) part of a group of filmmakers affiliated to the music and aesthetics known as ‘No Wave’. Shot mainly on Super-8, Dick’s films from this period feature many people and musicians from the No Wave movement in New York, such as Lydia Lunch, Pat Place, James Chance and Ikue Mori. Invoking the spirit of ’60s underground filmmakers, her work betrays an interest in individual transgression, urban street life, kitsch and pop culture. This DVD is a showcase of three of her films from 1978: “GUERILLRE TALKS”, “SHE HAD HER GUN ALL READY” and “STATEN ISLAND”.
