As part of Media City Film Festival’s opening night festivities in partnership with the Penny Stamps Speaker Series, the double-bill screening of legendary filmmakers and feminist activists Carolee Schneemann and Austria’s Valie Export is only $5. The Detroit Film Theatre will host Schneemann, who will make an in-person presentation of her film Fuses as well as provide context for Export’s Poem Films. Both women, known for using their disciplines to explore the treatment of the female body and the mistreatment of the definition of both sexuality and gender, are ideal voices for Media City’s Transformative Actions.
