This film screened on Wednesday 12th August 2015.
Selected by Maeve Connolly and Alice Butler in connection with this month’s season on protest cinema (see page 13), the IFI presents Rehana Zaman’s Some Women, Other Women and all the Bittermen with Jaki Irvine’s City of Women. Structured in six parts and concerned with the position of the worker under global capitalism, Some Women… combines a fictional soap opera about a corporate takeover and the strike that ensues with fragments of campaign footage about the organisation, Justice for Domestic Workers Leeds. Shot over the course of one night on Foley Street, Jaki Irvine’s City of Women sees a diverse group enact a series of gestures extracted from William Hogarth’s The Harlot’s Progress.
Maeve Connolly (IADT) and artist Jaki Irvine will introduce the event. For more on this month’s Cinema of Protest season at the IFI, Click Here.
