As the title character in writer-director Amos Kollek’s “Sue,” Anna Thomson offers a haunting portrayal of a lonely Manhattanite who slowly descends into madness. But the indie production itself is an unsatisfying mix of gritty realism, poignant sentiment and scenes that, perhaps inadvertently, play like deadpan comedy. Pic lacks commercial potential, even as a homevideo release, but may generate interest on global fest circuit.

(Movie review by Joe Leydon for Variety, February 28, 1998)

Every Week, from 9 pm to 12 pm

For this very first screening cycle at the RM Base, Jennifer Bailey has selected films and moving image works that consider how female lives operate inside and outside the built environment and its intended purpose, e.g. economic, executive, leisure, education. The works consider the mechanisms of how agency and self-identity are produced within and in opposition to these surroundings.

The content selected is related to Bailey’s exhibition A brief history of girliness, currently showing at Space in Between, London. The work presented includes an obstructive installation made from exterior architectural materials and imagery from the built environment and medicine.

"Jennifer Bailey’s work is about the mechanisms of subjectivity and an investigation into the visual codes that constitute authenticity. Her practice sometimes takes her family, particularly her sister, as subject or material. Their inclusion is related to wider interests including the ‘performance’ of social class and attitudes to paid work, food and childrearing. Bailey lives and works in Glasgow." (SIB)
