Yvonne Rainer Retrospective: Kristina Talking Pictures
Kristina Talking Pictures
Rainer continues to experiment as Kristina pushes avant-garde film grammar into thrillingly novel.
* Tue, Mar 14, 4:00 pm
Join us every Tuesday for the next 7 weeks for a Marin County exclusive theatrical retrospective of one of Avant-Gard’s most influential and boundary-pushing woman filmmakers of our time.
Namechecking both Virginia Woolf and Jean-Luc Godard in the film’s opening segment, Rainer continues to experiment in her elegiac, hybrid third feature with unshackling narrative from conventional representation, using the paradoxical feminine figure of a lion tamer,
Kristina (played by several women, including Rainer herself), and a disjunctive audiovisual syntax that pushes avant-garde film grammar into thrillingly novel, expressive realms. Kristina arrives from Budapest to 1970s New York City, harboring hopes of becoming a dance choreographer, as well as romantic affections for an elusive sailor named Raoul.
