Stranger with My Face Film Festival
Date: February 17th, 2012
Hosts: Flash Factory
Details: Stranger With My Face is run by Australian filmmakers Briony Kidd and Rebecca Thomson and takes place in Tasmania.
Deriving its name from the cult novel by Lois Duncan, the festival explores themes of the the shadow self, tapping into archetypes like the evil twin and the mad woman in the attic. Mainstream film continues to present its female monsters as exotic, the 'other' (the 'monstrous-feminine' as Barbara Creed would have it), failing to recognise that this doesn't reflect the perspective of at least half of the audience.
And yet female novelists have been delving into the darker side of their own natures for hundreds of years, going back to Mary Shelley and the Brontes StrangerWith My Face looks to literary as well as cinematic traditions, understanding that one enriches the other.
