A Collection of Films Exploring Women, Culture, Science and Myth (Volume I)

Sale Format(s): DVD

A Biography of Lilith (35 min)

In a lively mix of off-beat narrative, collage and memoir, A Biography of Lilith updates the creation myth by telling the story of the first woman and for some, the first feminist.
Partially supported by a finishing fund grant from the Experimental Television Center, as a project of the New York State Council on the Arts.

"Sachs' art for fusing documentary and experimental narrative is unquestionably enormous. In this new film, her combination of an interview with a friend, the myth of Lilith and beauteous images of things like jelly fish (which float like iridescent breasts on screen) culminates in stunning cinema."
- Molly Hankwitz, Art Papers

The House of Science: a museum of false facts (30 min)

"Offering a new feminized film form, this piece explores both art and science's representation of women, combining home movies, personal remembrances, staged scenes and found footage into an intricate visual and aural college. A girl's sometimes difficult coming of age rituals are recast into a potent web for affirmation and growth." (SF Cinematheque)

"A disturbing discovery and a remarkable exposition. The film demonstrates Sachs' natural gifts as an autobiographer, a philosopher and a true artist." (Melbourne Film Festival)
