Grandma's Grammar  

Open City Documentary Film Festival

London, April 2024.

Five screening programme, thirteen films. 

Grandma’s Grammar traces the persistence of the

figure of the grandmother as locus of feminist historicity

in non-fiction film, considering the grandmother as cinematic medium and privileged subject for modelling alternative modes of storytelling, inter-generational genealogies, and archives of memory and lived

experience. Drawing together works by Jean-Pierre

Bekolo, Tânia Dinis, Katsuhiko Fukuda, Barbara Hammer, Utako Koguchi, Cecilia Mangini, Gunvor Nelson, Margaret Rorison, Chiemi Shimada, Emilija Škarnulytė, Khady & Mariama Sylla and Naomi Uman, the grandmother

comes into view as nexus and prism of cinematic possibility, sodality and solidarity, and an ethics of kinship within, and beyond, relation.
