In Person: Bette Gordon
Introduced by Bette Gordon; followed by an in-depth conversation with the director and curator Sheryl Mousley.
One of the most radical and raw films of the 1980s and a key piece of the NoWave Movement, Empty Suitcases presents a stark look at a strong photographer living life on the edge. Set within the milieu of the Downtown art world (with a cameo by Nan Goldin), the artist embraces anarchy and terrorism as ways to address the sexual, economic, social, and professional struggles she faces. 1980, video, 49 minutes.
