Yvonne Rainer’s Privilege (1990)

Roxie Theater

Special time and location: September 11-13, 1990 – 7:00 & 9:15

The S.F. Cinematheque, in collaboration with the Roxie Cinema, presents the S.F. premiere of Yvonne Rainer’s Privilege. Beginning as a public examination into the private matter of menopause, Privilege unleashes a spectrum of volatile issues ranging from information blackout and gender ideology to racial discrimination and sexual violation. Approaching these issues with a constantly shifting subjectivity, Rainer creates moral collisions and unlikely alignments; all the while attempting to voice a female identity within a culture where the site of menopause signifies women’s passage into “the other side of privilege.” (100 min.)
