Relating Narratives: Vivian’s Garden (2017) + Q & A with Rosalind Nashashibi

Wed 12th September 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

- £5

Vivian’s Garden – Rosalind Nashashibi (2017, 29 minutes, 50 seconds)

 

The exhibition Relating Narratives presents Rosalind Nashashibi’s film Vivian’s Garden, a sensitive portrait of two Swiss / Austrian émigré artists living in Panajachel, Guatemala, where they have developed a matriarchal compound in an environment that offers both refuge and terror. Elisabeth is in her nineties and Vivian in her sixties and they are as close as maiden sisters, in fact the family relationship is shifting, each is at times mother and daughter to the other. This film takes a close and dreamy look at their artistic, emotional and economic lives, with their extended householders: Mayan villagers as guardians and home help, and an assortment of dogs, it offers a tender look at an instance of post-colonial complexity. The film screening will be followed by a Q and A with Rosalind Nashashibi

 

This screening is part of a programme of films presented by the exhibition Relating Narratives at The Horse Hospital exploring the way in which women look to other women – friends, sisters, mothers, writers, poets, – to construct an alternative register within which to situate themselves and mediate their relationship with the world. The programme presents films made by women about women.
