Acts and Intermissions

With Director Abigail Child

Run Time: 57 mins USA Language: English

Synopsis

Abigail Child’s documentary explores the resurgence of protest in the 21st Century through a refracted observation of the life and works of anarchist revolutionary Emma Goldman. The work is hybrid and prismatic, utilizing contemporary and archival footage and re-enactment to expose the continuing conflicts between labor and property, revolutionary purity and personal freedom.

“As the Most Dangerous Woman Alive, Goldman’s life is seen as an ongoing negotiation of revolutionary purity and personal freedom, a complexity that Child mirrors in her own formal strategies. She layers multiple fragments of Emma’s liberatory legacy—from archive, from reenactment and from observational cinema—her speculative play with the revolutionary ideas extending to the present moment of feminist revolt!” (Craig Baldwin).
