About the film: Directed by world-renowned video artist Joan Braderman, THE HERETICS chronicles the twenty-year span of feminist art magazine HERESIES. Filmed across the globe, THE HERETICS features interviews and artwork of the artists who grew Heresies into a feminist forum for revolution. Such luminaries as Alice Walker, Adrienne Rich, and Barbara Kruger got their starts in the magazine that spawned ground-breaking photography, poetry, art and ideas.
About the director: Joan Braderman is an award-winning video artist and filmmaker whose work is in such permanent collections as MoMA and the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris. Her films and videos have been shown in film festivals around the world including: the Whitney Biennial, the Edinburgh Film Festival, VIDEO VISIONS in the New York Film Festival at Lincoln Center, and the British Film Theater in London. Braderman took an extended leave from teaching at Hampshire College, in Amherst, Mass. as Professor of Film and Video — to make this film.
