Interview for Feminist Media Histories

Alla Gadassik, animation history professor at Emily Carr University of Art +Design, interviewed me for a scholarly article she was writing, "Homeworkers: Independent Animation and the Feminization of Creative Labor 1970-1990". You can read the article here.

I was happy to be included among them-- friends whose work I admire: Karen Aqua, Joanna Priestly, Susan Pitt, Jane Aaron, and Sally Cruikshank.

This was the first time that I was interviewed specifically about Audition, a film I was ambivalent about for decades, feeling that it was too self-revealing when I was hoping for a more universal story about the feminist dilemma of "having it all" in the 1970s. In talking to younger women now, in the 21st century, they find it quite relevant. I'm glad it's been unearthed!
