RCA Film Night Series: Riddles of the Sphinx
21 January 2020 | 6pm 8pm
Battersea, Gorvy Lecture Theatre
Join us for the latest in the RCA Film Night Series. We will be screening Riddles of the Sphinx (1977).
Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen's film addresses the position of women in patriarchy through the prism of psychoanalysis. Riddles of the Sphinx (1977) draws on the critical writings and investigations of both filmmakers into the codes of narrative cinema and offers an alternative formal structure through which to consider the images and meanings of female representation in film.
