31-01-2019 12:00:00 31-01-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York The Other Side Of The Underneath | 7:30 pm The unsung legacy of Jane Arden (1927-82) traverses the reaches of film and theater, encompassing film direction, screenwriting, playwriting, acting, as well as poetry and songwriting. After years spent working in television and theater, in the mid 1960s Arden became increasingly focused on feminism and the anti-psychiatry movement, shifting her output to stories centered on women and their societally imposed psycho-emotional burdens. Arden's reputation as a leading voice in the UK women's liberation movement solidified in the late 1960s and early 70s – she established the radical feminist theater group Holocaust, with Penny Slinger as a member, and wrote "A New Communion for Freaks, Prophets and Witches," a play that would soon be adapted into the psychedelic arthouse film THE OTHER SIDE OF THE UNDERNEATH. Her film work has been described as a sort of self-induced alternate form of therapy, her storylines quasi-biographical tales of unfolding psychological turmoil. Following her untimely death, her longtime lover and collaborator Jack Bond chose to suppress their films and twenty-five years passed before they were rereleased to the public. A prolific underground icon of radical feminist cinema and theater, Arden's books are long out of print, her plays unperformed, and her films rarely screened. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=348614 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
