28 Minutes

Repeat screening Wednesday, August 18, 2021

Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Sara Eliassen’s A Blank Slate (2014), streaming from Wednesday, July 7 through Tuesday, July 20, 2021.

A character is passing time in a desolate beach town. Slowly, the loneliness and alienation she experiences in the foreign town makes her enter into an uncanny delusional realm, that blurs the memory of her own experiences with that of women protagonists from film history.

A Blank Slate is presented here as one of five films and videos in Part Two | Gendering, Disgendering, Transgendering, the second of four programs in the online series Me, You, and Everyone We Know: Interrelationality, Alterity, Globalization programmed by Irmgard Emmelhainz for e-flux Video & Film. The series will run in four thematic parts from June 23 through August 18, 2021. Each part will include a two-week group screening, and a live discussion.
