November 8

Stacey Steers will present 3 short animated films from across 15 years of
process-focused filmmaking. In her handmade films, Steers works to
undercut cultural biases in film representation and to return agency and
independence to historic portrayals of women. She experiments with new
forms of animation in the surrealist tradition, using found footage in a
novel way to create provocative narratives. Her mesmerizing films move
with a stream of consciousness fluidity and summon disquieting dreamscapes
drawn from allegory, myth and archetype. She will introduce her work and
briefly illuminate their making.
