Films by Vivienne Dick and Eric Mitchell’s Red Italy
With Vivienne Dick in person
The influence of Amos Poe’s filmmaking strategies and the fostering of a community inspired other filmmakers. Vivienne Dick engages female artists, most of whom are associated with the punk music scene, in a series of Warhol-like portraits in Guerillere Talks (1978, 28 mins.). Beauty Becomes the Beast (1979, 45 mins.) sets the baby-faced punk musician Lydia Lunch against the decaying, rubble-strewn corners of the city. In Red Italy (1979, 55 mins.), Eric Mitchell grapples with the theme of class struggle, while invoking the films of Pasolini and Antonioni.
