Presentation of Mizora, de Anna Bunting-Branch
Mizora – A World of Women is a short science-fiction story, published anonymously by American author Mary E. Bradley Lane in 1881. The story of Vera, a Russian political exile, who discovers the land of Mizora, a utopia within the Earth that has evolved beyond the male race, is one of the first known feminist science-fiction novels. This new video by Anna Bunting-Branch takes this little-known text as a starting point, re-staging the rich imagery of the culture, science and technology of Bradley Lane’s enchanted world of Mizora through painted sets and props.
The film will be presented in A*Desk on the 19th of February at 7pm by the author, Anna Bunting-Branch, who will answer questions from the audience at the end of the presentation and screening of the video.
