I agree with others that many experimental works by women use a woman’s voice or voices.
It might be useful to recall that what was often novel in women’s films in the 60s-70s era was dealing with a narrator or in documentary experts or witnesses who were women. We might connect this with changing conditions and technologies of production that made synch sound recording cheaper and more accessible for artisan filmmaking. as well as women artists having a special interest in women saying things as well as looking at things. The modes of silent, sound, and synch sound in experimental film also play a part. For example, we see a lot of Jane Brakhage in her husband’s work, but do we ever hear her? I remember after a screening of a 90 minute early feminist film of the late sixties, one of my feminist friends remarking about the guys attending, “I’ll be that’s the first time most of them listened to women talking for so long and not leaving or interrupting them.” Chuck Kleinhans _______________________________________________ FrameWorks mailing list FrameWorks@jonasmekasfilms.com https://mailman-mail5.webfaction.com/listinfo/frameworks
