Cinema on the Fringe Screening and Book Talk (Event Co-Organizer)

The Loyolan  online

2018-02-16

Lewd Looks examines the little-known history of the production, reception and regulation of American sex exploitation films in the 1960s. The book narrates the sexploitation film as a site for the changing sexual expressivity of US cinema, and a locus of industrial and textual anxiety about the nature of eroticized film spectatorship. In this and other work, Gorfinkel is concerned with the historicity of the filmic sexed body, and of thinking through cinema’s investment in corporeal spectacle and its aesthetic labor.

Viva has screened at major film festivals and art spaces around the world. Biller’s work has been written about in scholarly books and journals. She is feted for her use of classic and historical film styles and genres to consider women’s experience and subjectivity, inscribing feminist codes within cinema’s aesthetic pleasures and forms.

Grrrl in Focus: Sharon Mooney

To celebrate Women’s History Month, LMU is presenting Grrrls on Film, a free festival featuring films and music from groundbreaking female artists on March 18, 19 and 20. The event borrows its name from the riot grrrl movement of the 1990s, which fused the Do-It-Yourself credo of punk with Third Wave Feminism’s call for self-determination. Loglines spoke to one of the masterminds behind the festival, SFTV’s own Clinical Assistant Professor Sharon Mooney.
