Above: Valie Export, Invisible Adversaries (Unsichtbare Gegner), 1980
15 June 2007
Outdoor rooftop screening
Export’s seminal first feature is a tour-de-force of radical paranoia presented in a special rooftop screening overlooking the city. Anna wakes to a radio signal that she interprets as an alien invasion. Her investigations are an exegesis on the self, mental instability, the media and sexual politics.
'The film feels a little as if Godard were reincarnated as a woman and decided to make a feminist version of The Invasion of the Body Snatchers' Amy Taubin.
