Mascara Film Club


Mascara Film Club is an artist-run film club, which mostly takes place in North-East London. Taking place outside both film festival circuits and institutional art spaces, we screen artists’ moving image in more convivial contexts. We understand film screenings defined less as the relation between film and spectators in hushed rooms, but rather as performative and social events where the critical intimacies of friendship and community can come to the fore. Through our programming we seek to bring into conversation films and people, and foster a self-organised infrastructure for moving image practitioners.


Mascara Film Club is currently organised by Kasia Lukasik, Rufus Rock and Daisy Smith.

#10:
Winnie Herbstein



19 November - 9 December 2020
Location: online

Programme:
Minutes, Winnie Herbstein, 2019


Three women sit on a leather sofa discussing in a meeting. The woman in the centre wearing large dark sunglasses is speaking. The subtitle reads ‘and honest with us.’

Mascara Film Club is pleased to present the first in our rolling programme of monthly online screenings, Minutes (2019) by Winnie Herbstein.

Minutes draws on material from the archive of Take Root, a women’s self-build group from Glasgow in the 1990s. Working closely with minutes taken from the group’s meetings, moments were developed into scenarios and restaged by members of Slaghammers, a feminist welding group based at Glasgow Autonomous Space. Layering and sharing experiences of organising, this video was shown as part of the exhibition Brace, a solo show at Jupiter Woods, London.
