My First Film (Zia Anger, 2019, 90 mins, live multimedia performance)

My First Film is a feature-length multimedia performance in which filmmaker Zia Anger interacts with media on screen and the audience using real-time text, spontaneous Google searches, audience directives and AirDrops. A vital, singular, innovative work that explores what it means to be a woman and an artist, the project showcases Anger’s sensibilities and pushes the boundaries of cinematic experience.

“Defies convention, challenging what a film can be and how an artist can relate to their audience.” —Dana Reinoos, Hyperallergic
