Live Performance: My First Film
Institute of Contemporary Arts
My First Film, dir. Zia Anger, USA 2018, 75 min., English

Zia Anger’s My First Film is an experimental multimedia performance that seeks to reinterpret conventional frameworks of the cinematic experience. Readapted by Anger especially for FRAMES of REPRESENTATION 2021, this self-reflective and highly conceptual narrative investigates the artist’s personal and professional failures, contemplating the film industry and a woman’s place within it. 

In this live and partly improvised performance, with space for audience interaction, Anger questions traditional relationships between creator and spectator, filmmaker and venue, cinema and art – gesturing toward a resistance and reimagination of the normalised understanding of the moving image.
