Bred and Born
As part of the EEFF Four Corners presents a double-bill screening of two early films, shown on the original 16mm. Both films place women at the centre of the images and stories, seeking to counteract male-defined culture and to create a new visual language through which women’s identity can be explored.
‘Often During the Day’, directed by Joanna Davis, 16 mins, 1979.
A closely mapped investigation of a kitchen, and women’s relationship to the domestic sphere.
‘Bred and Born’, directed by Joanna Davis and Mary Pat Leece, 75 mins, 1983
An experimental documentary, produced over four years, which interweaves two parallel strands: a women’s discussion group on mother-daughter relationships, and interviews with four generations of women from an East End family.
