MINISTÉRIO DA CULTURA  present

Synopsis

By putting in direct collation the voices and bodies of contemporary women with the contents of letters sent to the American feminist magazine “Ms.” in the 1970s, “Yours in Sisterhood” allows for present and past to create a rich and complex relationship – sometimes repetitive, sometimes disconcerting, and many times in conflict. The film’s movement creates a reflection on both the history and the future of feminism. The slogan “the personal is political” gains a new meaning, and a conceit that could seem paralyzing reveals itself in constant renewal thanks to its surrounding bodies and landscapes.

Director

Irene Lusztig’s film and video work mines old images and technologies for new meanings in order to reframe, recuperate, and reanimate forgotten and neglected histories. Much of her current work is centered on public feminism, language, and histories of women and women’s bodies, including her debut feature “Reconstruction” (2001) the feature length archival film essay “The motherhood archives” (2013) and the ongoing web-based “Worry Box Project” (2011).
