Join a series of screenings and discussions dedicated to the women filmmakers of the LFMC

As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the London Film-makers’ Co-op (LFMC), Tate Modern opens its Counter-Histories series with a programme dedicated to a rarely seen but remarkable ensemble of films – both single screen and expanded – made by women filmmakers since the 1970s in the context of the artist-led, cooperative organisation. Produced against a backdrop of growing feminist consciousness, these films built on the methods, processes and ethos associated with the Co-op to address the world outside of the projection room.
