Amos Poe’s Unmade Beds and short films by Jack Goldstein, Cindy Sherman, and Ericka Beckman
With Amos Poe in person
Diverging from the highly formal, Structural film practices of a previous generation, a number of New York artists in the mid- to late 1970s engaged the body, meaning, and narrative. Jack Goldstein engages popular culture in Shane, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, White Dove, and Ballet Shoe (1974-75, 10 mins.). In Doll Clothes (1975, 2 mins.), Cindy Sherman presents the woman’s body as a copy, and as an object capable of forging multiple identities. Ericka Beckman offers the body in movement and a woman’s voice in song in Hit and Run (1977, 9 mins). And Amos Poe’s film Unmade Beds (1976, 77 mins.) is a loose remake of Godard’s Breathless, featuring a cameo by Debbie Harry.
