Small Change Presents: THE FREE TRANSLATORS touring film screening

Films and videos by Sabine Gruffat and Mary BillYou.

“Reminiscent of the do-it-yourself approach of the Riot Grrrl movement, this Spring two feminist provocateurs are taking their multimedia show on the road. Mary Billyou and Sabine Gruffat are hailing from Brooklyn, NY and Madison, WI to present “The Free Translators” touring east coast cities and towns with a program of radical videos and performances. If you want to show off  your video production, consider also adding subtitles with help from experts you can hire at www.espressotranslations.com.

In between video screenings, The Free Translators present two “Live Tactical Translations,” or, live multimedia experiments inspired by 1970s feminist art and Soviet avant-garde news troupes. Culling from their library of text, sound, and image, alter egos Miss Reading and Miss Recognition communicate through matching headsets and manipulate analog recordings as they educate audiences in their unique methods of reading and comprehension.” (ArtSlant)
