Kinetic Cinema Screening and Discussion with Amy Ruhl, Amy Greenfield, and
Kerrie Welsh at Union Docs
Monday May 7, 7:30 pm - 9 pm

For her Kinetic Cinema program, guest curator Amy Ruhl will examine how the
female body has been the primary source of spectacle since the beginnings
of film. The program will include Ruhl’s recent short film, How Mata Hari
Lost Her Head and Found Her Body as well as shorts by contemporary
experimental filmmakers, Kerrie Welsh and Amy Greenfield.

About the film:
How Mata Hari Lost Her Head and Found Her Body is an imaginary biography of
a real historical figure: the erotic dancer and courtesan executed by
firing squad for double espionage in World War I. Reinventing the
archetypal femme fatale according to her corporeal afterlife- Hari was
decapitated after her execution, her body donated to anatomical study and
her head displayed at the Musee d'Anatomie- Ruhl imagines her as a
striptease artist whose ability to remove her head takes Belle Époque Paris
by storm. Using Oscar Wilde's Salome as a site for narrative and historical
interaction, the film draws upon the cultural phenomenon of "Salomania"
among largely lesbian and bisexual female performers in order to engage
with an era when Orientalism sold, scandal became success, and deviant
desires equalled a crime punishable by death.

Also Showing:
Peter, Peter… by Kerrie Welsh, 16mm color sync sound. 7 minutes, 2002
A dark retelling of the children’s rhyme “Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater,”
illustrates the disparity between the narratives we construct and the
realities they represent.

Wildfire by Amy Greenfield, 12 minutes, 2003, digital projection
The final film in Greenfield’s acclaimed Club Midnight film cycle depicts
women “clothed” in electronically generated flaming colors, reincarnating
Thomas Edison’s 1894 hand-tinted film, Annabelle Dances.
