Join us at 7:00 pm on November 2 for a screening of Stan Brakhage’s Window Water Baby Moving on 16mm film, with a discussion to follow with UAlbany Professor Shira Segal. The evening will conclude with a reception. This event is part of programming for the exhibition Birthing Bodies, which explores the female, pregnant, and birthing body as a site of strength and power.
This event is free and open to the public.
Shira Segal is the Director of Film Studies at the University at Albany and a feminist documentary and experimental film studies scholar. Segal’s dissertation, Home Movies and Home Birth: The Avant-garde Childbirth Film and Pregnancy in New Media was informed by her research and work on Stan Brakhage and his birth films.
