Women’s Video: Lesbian Mothers (1972) and Descartes (1968)

One of the videos discussed in Jeanne Betancourt’s article on the 1972 Women’s Video Festival in New York. How great that it’s online!

 

Also screened: Descartes (1968) by Joanne Kyger. Just brilliant!

  1. Fantastic that you have found on-line LESBIANS MOTHERS. It is a remarkable and revolutionary piece — just as they claim in the name they identify under at the time. I knew Norma and Rita in this period. The piece pre-dates the name, Amazon Media Project, that they shortly after this piece adopt.

    • It’s great. I’m so glad to find these things online and often surprised at what’s out there. Especially glad that the filmmaker has chosen to share this. Making connections between all these works is exactly what the blog is for!
