Nothing a Little Soap and Water Can’t Fix

Directed by Jennifer Proctor, US, 2017

In films, as in life, the bathtub represents a private space for women – a place not only to groom, but to relax, to think, to be alone, to find sanctuary. For Hollywood, though, it’s also a place of naked vulnerability, where women narratively placed in harm’s way have no escape. Using appropriated movies, this experimental found footage work deconstructs the representations of women in this domestic space as historically framed in popular film. (German Premiere)

Lyle

Written and Directed by Stewart Thorndike, US, 2014

A mother’s grief turns to paranoia when she begins to suspect her eccentric neighbors are involved in a satanic pact. Starring Gaby Hoffmann (Transparent, Girls) and Ingrid Jungermann (Women Who Kill), and paying homage to Rosemary’s Baby, this queer psychological horror brings the viewer through a nightmarish journey of gaslighting, loss, loneliness, and mistrust.
