Directed by Laura Mulvey and Mark Lewis
UK 1993, color, 50 min.
This reflective piece considers the fate of monuments to Communism in
the former Soviet Union. Mulvey and Lewis consult with sculptors, art
historians and museum directors to interrogate the disappearance of
these enormous, formerly omnipresent structures.
Directed by Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen
UK 1980, color, 30 min.
Amy Johnson was the first woman to fly solo from Great Britain to
Australia. Mulvey and Wollen's experimental documentary combines
newsreel footage of the aviator's arrival, dramatic recreations of
events from her life and contemporary discussions by feminist groups on
the subject of heroism in this most unconventional biopic.
Directed by Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen
UK 1983, color, 29 min.
An unconventional portrait of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo and Mexican
photographer Tina Modotti, Mulvey and Wollen's film, which was
originally commissioned for an international art exhibition, considers
feminist issues in contemporary art.
