Here is a short film about Ladyfest Cambridge 2007.
The film is experimental in its execution, shot on Super 8 Tri-X with sound recorded on mini-disc. You can often here the noise of the Super 8 camera in the background.
Ladyfest Cambridge 2007 consisted of over 70 performances over 7 days in 7 venues across Cambridge in 2007. The stark grain of the Super 8 and poorly recored sound (by me) help to convey the excitement of the event.
Like a lot of my projects, the footage has languished on a hard-drive, staring at me reproachfully until I gave in and completed the edit, now in 2012 after more than 5 years!
Ladyfest is a global phenomenon, a not-for-profit celebration of female creativity and performance.
