About the Event


The Critical Media Lab (CML), McGill’s Department of Anthropology and the Leadership for the Ecozoic (L4E) present:


September 30th, 2022 | 7:30 | 3475 Peel

Sandra Lahire’s intricately layered images and sounds unveil the physical threat of radioactivity on communities, landscapes, and women’s laboring bodies.

Sandra Lahire (1950-2011) was a central member of the feminist and experimental filmmaking community in London in the 1980s and 1990s. She made ten 16mm kaleidoscopic films marked by corporeal vulnerability – her own, that of the worker's body, the body of the earth, the body of film. With her "Anti-Nuclear Trilogy," which merges documentary, performance, animation, and superimposition (both in camera and on the optical printer), Lahire proposes a profound reflection on the patriarchal legacies of human violence against the nonhuman world – Excerpt from Maria Palacios Cruz's introduction to “Living on Air: the Films and Words of Sandra Lahire.”

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with filmmakers and anthropologists Lisa Stevenson, Ariane Lorrain, Amélie Ward (Critical Media Lab) and guest artist, filmmaker and film scholar Cathy Lee Crane (Ithaca College).

The panel will be moderated by Thalia Danielson, Catherine Zambrano and Jasmine C. Pisapia.
