SHE HAD HER GUN ALL READY
Director: Vivienne Dick. 1978, USA, 28 mins
Set in the Lower East Side, the film explores the unequal power dynamic between two people. With Lydia Lunch and Pat Place.
THE IRREDUCIBLE DIFFERENCE OF THE OTHER
Director: Vivienne Dick. 2013, Ireland, 27 mins
The Irreducible Difference of the Other questions what it means to be human in a world orientated towards war, terror, and consumption with Franco-Irish actress Olwen Fouéré inhabiting the two personas of Antonin Artaud and Russian poet Anna Akhmatova. Key historical moments are referenced, including opposition to the Iraq war, the Arab Spring and recent anti-austerity protests, proclaiming the desire for a world which is more balanced, and which focuses less on exploitation and destruction. An implicit critique of the male paradigm is embodied by the structure of the film – a richly textured weaving of sound and images – which posits the need for a renewal of relationship on both a personal and global level.
