(Marielle Nitoslawska, 2014, US, DCP, 100 min.)

Filmmaker Marielle Nitoslawska’s feature-length documentary Breaking the Frame is a sensitive and insightful profile of radical New York artist Carolee Schneemann. A pioneer of performance, body art, and avant-garde cinema, Schneemann has been challenging assumptions about feminism, gender, sexuality, and identity in the art world for five decades. The collaged and diaristic quality of Schneemann’s own, very personal, approach to cinema is mirrored in Nitoslawska’s intimate portrait of the artist.
