The Showroom

Their workshop is the home: a Cinenova screening

Saturday 6 October 2012, 3–5pm

Babies and children welcome


Taking its title from the propaganda-style narration in 1945 film Homes for the People, this screening of works from Cinenova's collection charts through nearly 90 years of filmmaking, the evolving intersection of feminist politics with the 'domestic'.

Caroline Shedlon, 

17 Rooms (Or What Do Lesbians Do In Bed), UK, 1985, 10 mins

Germain Dulac, Smiling Madame Beudet, France, 1922, 35 mins

Dara Greenwald with Ona Mirkinson, The Package, USA, 2010, 10 mins
