Breaking the Frame

2012 / 100min / DCP


Carolee Schneemann and filmmaker Marielle Nitoslawska in person, moderated by artist and activist Andrew Lampert.

The legendary artist and iconoclast Carolee Schneemann is enjoying a muchdeserved retrospective at the MoMA PS1, so what better excuse to show Nitoslawska’s marvelous portrait of Schneemann. By turns elliptical, poetic, and visceral, the wildly inventive Breaking the Frame eschews tepid paint-by-numbers biography, offering instead that rare artist doc that finds an innovative form worthy of its groundbreaking subject.
