MAKINGMADNESS” An artist-talk by Elisabeth Subrin

Filmmaker, video artist, and screenwriter, Elisabeth Subrin will present research, film clips, and strategies for working on and within issues and experiences of mental illness. An informal discussion on the nature, experience, and poetics of “madness,” both within popular culture and media art, this presentation is based on Subrin’s decade-long investigation into cinematic representations of women’s afflictions as well as research from her screenplay about bipolar disorder.This discussion is part study of “madness,” part autobiographical account of Subrin’s own experience, and part how-to lecture on making it through.
