How To Fight Like A Girl is a look inside a playful, political, gorgeous, ugly, queer-minded aesthetic. These artists’ film, video, and new media works call to glitter bomb the pigs, wrangle the bourgeois with pink lasso’s, and drown the misogynists in play-doh spaghetti. Using tropes of theater, puppetry, drag, kitsch, and horror intertwined with fiercely intelligent social, political, and personal observations, these artists are paving out a current and important aesthetic like no other.

-Part I – Work by Aaron Zeghers-

Holland, Man.
[2015, 20min, 16mm + Super 8 + Digital + Live Sound]

As two growing years pass, Don Zeghers – farmer from Holland, Manitoba – phases out his multi-generational family farm. With experimental photography on Super 8, 16mm and digital mediums, his son Aaron Zeghers follows this life change. The dissolution of the family farm is seen both intimately but also as a microcosm of the modern industrialized world. Nature is contrasted with industrial might in this sentimental and existential portrait of one’s own family. (This will not be performed in Milwaukee)

Everything Turns…
[2016, 12min, Super8]

From 1 to 12 minutes, ‘Everything Turns…’ is a shorthand study of the mythology of numbers. Scientific tradition is adopted then eschewed for rumours, legends and defunct theories from across the ages. As the days turn to night and the seasons pass, the camera pens a year-long record of space, movement and the passing of time in historic locations around the world. This almanac of anthropomorphic numerology is recorded in-camera onto Super 8 using a myriad of experimental techniques. Just like Richter nearly 100 years ago, we will discover that everything turns, everything revolves and everything feels the deep score of time.

Documentaries of Eva Marie Rødbro
Presented by RUN OF LIFE
Director Eva Marie Rødbro in Attendance


The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N. Milwaukee
Tuesday, October 11th, 7 pm, $7-10

It sometimes seems that Eva Marie Rødbro’s camera must be invisible. Running close with different groups of young people, she creates compelling eye-level portraits of youth devoid of nostalgia. With astonishing editing and generous observation, Rødbro’s docs are completely embedded in the small tight-knit communities she is depicting. Rødbro eschews linear narratives, offering audiences a free-floating relationship with the people onscreen, framing the minutae of their experience as an empathatetic territory, where even those we imagine as very different from us are intimately recognizable.

Program Details:
Fuck You Kiss Me (2008, video, 6 min.)
I Touched Her Legs (2010, video, 15 min.)
Kriger (2013, video, 25 min.)
Dan Mark (2014, video, 30 min.)
We Chose The Milky Way (2015, video, 28 min.)

Danish photographer and director Eva Marie Rødbro (1980) lives and works in Copenhagen, DK. She graduated from the National Danish Film School in 2015 and Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 2008. Rødbro has exhibited and screened internationally at numerous shows, events and festivals including: FOAM, W139, NL fotomuseum, Berlin Documentary Forum, Charlottenborg Kunsthal, CPH:DOX and the Ann Arbor Film Festival. She has documented the wild youth of teenagers in Greenland and the United States in her award winning shorts, Fuck You Kiss Me (2008) I Touched Her Legs (2010), Kriger (2013) Dan Mark (2014), and most recently with We Chose the Milky Way (2015).
