Supernormal Festival

5 – 7 August 2016, Braziers Park, Oxfordshire

Supernormal and Club des Femmes present a specially curated screening of THROUGH A GLASS, DARKLY. The programme focuses on work by post-punk’s most provocative female filmmakers who treated the moving image like a mirror or crystal ball; a surface of divination through which to explore ideas around female subjectivity and that of the gendered viewer, evoking metaphysical journeys and challenging the limits of the body.
