Join us for a screening of Sally Potter’s first feature film, The Gold Diggers, a ground-breaking work of early-1980s feminist cinema. Starring Julie Christie as the Icon, the film is an ode to the power of movies and the power of gold and icons, as bank clerk Celeste (Colette Laffont) tries to reveal the relationship between gold and power—and male power. The Gold Diggers borrows from musicals, period dramas, and silent thrillers. Replete with singing, dancing, and semiotics, it was shot in black and white by Babette Magolte. Watch the trailer here. Angela Dufresne’s surreal short films reveal direct ties to her paintings, exploring pop culture and the power of images. This screening is programmed by ‘Beaver Fever’ guest curator Jennifer Kabat.
