April 16th - Alt Girl Cinema: ANA MENDIETA: FUEGO DE TIERRA
The Women's Community Center of Central Texas created #AltGirlCinemato provide a cultural space and programming for women filmmakers, artists, and supporters. So far it's been such a fulfilling endeavor and we're so grateful for the attendance of the last screenings. We are excited to bring you our next film, a documentary on Cuban artist Ana Mendieta.
This beautiful video is a portrait of the life and work of Cuban-born American artist Ana Mendieta. Mendieta used her own body, the raw materials of nature, and Afro-Cuban religion to express her feminist political consciousness and poetic vision. Interview footage with Mendieta and her own filmed records of her earthworks and performances are incorporated to render a vivid testament to her energy and extraordinary talent after her tragic, untimely death in 1985.
