The Heretics: A film by Joan Braderman

Screening and panel discussion at CCA Cinematheque
featuring Harmony Hammond, Lucy Lippard, Sabra Moore with Elissa Auther, Moderator

The Heretics is a feature-length experimental documentary film about the Women’s Art Movement of the 1970s, specifically the Heresies Collective, a feminist journal on art and politics. Director Joan Braderman, a founding member of Heresies, has reunited Collective members to share their story. In her film, Braderman takes her camera crew on the road – from New Mexico to Venice – to revisit her collective sisters. Now ages 54 to 84, the women gather in homes, studios and worksites. With the same excitement and freshness that they brought to the publication, the women recant the tale of how and why they came together, made content decisions, and physically cut and pasted the publication into being, issue after issue. An amusing yet informative history bursts through in this experimental spark.
