Breaking the Frame is a feature-length documentary portrait of the New York artist Carolee Schneemann, a pioneer of performance and body art as well as avant-garde cinema who has been breaking the frames of the art world for five decades, in a variety of mediums, challenging assumptions of feminism, gender, sexuality, and identity. Shot over a period of six years, the film captures the artist at home and in her studio and interweaves extensive film excerpts from her groundbreaking film work and documentation of her performances.
Film screened in the presence of the director Marielle Nitoslawska.
Introduction by Annalisa Sacchi from the Department of 'Culture del progetto' at Università Iuav, Venice.
