PLENTY 9: Bouvier and Prusakova

Curated by

Bouvier and Prusakova 
Marya Alford, USA, 2005, 16mm, colour, sound, 25 minutes

To accompany images of cherry blossom against a radiant blue sky, a voice reads an autobiographical account of a relationship. The text is excerpted from the Warren Commission testimony of Marina Oswald Porter, the wife of Lee Harvey Oswald, assassin of President John F. Kennedy. Titled by the maiden names of their widows, the film parallels the lives of both women.

Screening to coincide with the 70th birthday of Marina Oswald Porter. This special PLENTY screening takes place at X Marks the Bökship.

 


The screening series PLENTY proposes a new way of looking at artists’ films by showing only a single work, regardless of its duration. Each film is given the freedom to unfold on its own terms, and the viewer is given the time and space to consider it.

Part of Brief Habits programme curated by Shama Khanna.
