RSVP here, and you will receive a zoom link
Join Nora Philippe, Curator of the Mauvais Genres Film Festival, to talk about the films selected and presented in this film series about feminism, gender and sexual identity, and more broadly about the work of a curator.
A filmmaker, curator, and writer, Nora Philippe has directed Like Dolls, I’ll Rise (2018), which was selected in over thirty festivals in fifteen countries, Job Center, Please Hang On (2014), and The Ensorcery of James Ensor (2011). Her last documentary realized for Arte and broadcasted on October 27, 2021, Restituer ? L’Afrique en quête de ses chefs-d’œuvre tells the troubling story of the hundreds of thousands of African artefacts that fill Western museums, and whose return is now being demanded by their countries of origin (trailer here). A graduate of the École normale supérieure of Lyon in Art History and History of Color, she co-edited A Black Doll Like Me (2018), Inventing Ancient Greek Painting (2012), and is the author of Dear Job Center (2015). Nora Philippe has also produced over ten creative documentaries with her independent production company Les films de l’air and curates an annual original film series for La Maison Française at Columbia University. She teaches filmmaking at the École des arts décoratifs de Paris.
Mauvais Genres: French Cinema Takes on Gender is produced and presented by Columbia Maison Française and curated by Nora Philippe. With additional support provided by Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Knapp Family Foundation, Paul LeClerc Centennial Fund, Columbia University Institute for Ideas and Imagination, Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities.
