Parallax (1973)

Parallax is a three-screen film that addresses a central theme as a reoccurring metaphor for change. This dance film, choreographed by Edith Stephen, explores the sensuous flow of the female and male body.

Rosalind Schneider is an avant-garde independent filmmaker who has produced “Film as Art” since the 1970’s and short experimental 16mm films that reflect her background as a painter. She was the first artist and woman to show this genre at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington D.C. and her films were in the inaugural International Festivals of Women’s Films in Washington D.C. and New York. Schneider has presented and spoken about her work in Rekjavik, Iceland, and had solo film showings at the Cinematheque in Athens and in universities throughout the United States. Her work was shown at the Donnell Library’s “Meet the Makers” program in 2005 for the Media Center.
