After Hours, Dir. Jane Campion, Australia, 1984, 24 min


Recently, our cultural consciousness has become suffused with stories of sexual violence - women’s stories that span decades. Finally, we are listening and believing. Yet, largely careless and titillating depictions of rape and sexual violence continue to dominate — ELLE, Nocturnal Animals, Gone GirlUnvictiming interrogates how we should (re)present sexual violence. 

Bringing together largely overlooked short films on the subject, Another Gaze: A Feminist Film Journal has selected a five decades-spanning series of short films on this subject as seen by women filmmakers. From Mendieta to Campion, this selection of work will be presented in context with a post-screening discussion. 86 min
