  • Catch Helma Sanders-Brahm's radical film at Exploded View.

Noted German badass Helma Sanders-Brahm is known for her discussion of feminist issues and the female point of view in her films, among other things. Using both documentary and fictional narratives, Sanders-Brahm's work spanned over three decades and was a stalwart for the social justice concerns and movements of the time.

Exploded View will be screening her first feature "Unter dem Pflaster ist der Strand" or "Under the Pavement Lies the Strand" on Wednesday, March 11 beginning at 7:30 p.m. The 1975 film covers issues that are still pertinent today, such as abortion reform and the student movement that was happening in West Germany. 


As her style and approach transcends its more topical elements, the event promises to be a celebration of the career of Sanders-Brahm, who passed away in May 2014 after a long illness. You can see the film for $5 at the art gallery and experimental microcinema, located at 197 E. Toole Ave.
