Director/producer Brigid Maher is thrilled to announce the premiere of EXPERIMENTAL CURATOR: The Sally Dixon Story at the 60th Annual Ann Arbor Film Festival, the oldest avant-garde and experimental film festival in North America. The Oscar-qualifying film festival received more than 2,500 submissions and Experimental Curator was one of 150 selections. The doc will also screen at the 49th Annual Athens International Film + Video Festival, renowned for supporting cinema from underground and marginalized populations.
The film centers on the life of Sally Dixon – the woman who worked behind the scenes -with some of the greatest experimental filmmakers of the late 20th century. The documentary includes interviews and excerpts from Stan Brakhage, Jonas Mekas, Ken Jacobs, Carolee Schneemann, and many other filmmakers, scholars, and artists. Watch trailer here.
