Medea 1969, or Women’s Self-Abolition in the Years of Lead

Thu, Feb 13, 2014 5 PM

Louis-Georges Schwartz examines Pasolini’s film Medea in the context of Italian feminism and the women’s struggle within militant movements between 1969 and 1978, a period of great political upheaval in Italy marked by a wave of terrorism. Schwartz is Associate Professor of Film Studies in Ohio University’s School of Dance, Film, and Theater, and the author of Mechanical Witness: A History of Motion Picture Evidence in U.S. Courts (2009).
