  • Synopsis
  • To kick off our fall season of Full Aperture, in which we highlight experimental and artist film, Shotgun Cinema presents this experimental shorts program curated by the Austrian group sixpackfilm.

    She’s Gotta Have It was the first feature length film by Spike Lee, humorously exploring the self-confident sexuality of a young black woman. Lee’s film from 1986 initiated a wave of African American cinema that illuminated its themes from a black point of view. This program of the same name aptly gathers works in which women insist on the self-determination of identity and how they or their concerns are represented. This of course does not necessarily imply conformity to common behavioral patterns or social conventions. Rather, in these films it appears more important to overcome normative restrictions and relationships. Extraordinary female personalities forge their own individual and courageous paths.
