Technology often “speaks” in the voices of women, from virtual assistants like Siri and Alexa to the affectless tones of automated phone services. The various technological devices in this program, in turn, reshape what women’s voices might sound like, such as in absurd text-to-speech computer applications. In many of the short films in this program, the voices of technology and mass media alternately torment, inspire, and indelibly shape the lives of the filmmakers. Featuring videos by Gunvor Nelson, Elisa Giardina Papa, Nicolás Pereda, Courtney Stephens, and Pedro Chaskel and Pablo Salas. (program approx. 70 mins., video)
