Invisible Adversaries
(Unsichtbare Gegner)
A film by Valie Export
Austria, 1976, 108 minutes, Color, VHS/16mm, Subtitled
Order No. W99473
Breaking free of conventional unities of body, space and time, this early feature by one of Europe's leading feminist filmmakers is a haunting excursion into psychic disintegration and crumbling identity. It loosely covers one year in the life of Anna, a young Viennese photographer increasingly convinced that the Hyksos, a hostile alien force, are invading people's bodies and responsible for the decay and rising violence around her. Valie Export skillfully exploits montage and integrates video, performance and installation art with elements from Cubism, Surrealism, Dada and avant-garde cinema.

    "The film is a witty and visually brilliant essay on gender and experience, culture and environment."
