In conjunction with her current film retrospective, filmmaker, video artist, and photographer Tracey Moffatt (Australian, b. 1960) discusses her work. Principally derived from her interest in “staged” cinema, Moffatt’s films and videos draw upon popular culture and her personal background and examine the artificial and the confrontational through subjects such as Aboriginal subjugation, maternal domination, gender stereotypes, and class division. The discussion will focus on her formal and stylistic experimentations with cinema and her use of found footage to re-imagine the silent film.
