My First Film
(Zia Anger, 2019, 90 min, live multimedia performance)

My First Film is a feature-length multimedia performance in which filmmaker Zia Anger interacts with media on screen and the audience using real-time text, spontaneous Google searches, audience directives and AirDrops. A vital, singular, innovative work that explores what it means to be a woman and an artist, the project showcases Anger’s sensibilities and pushes the boundaries of cinematic experience.

"A carthartic collective experiment in what it might mean to challenge failure, recalibrate it, and reclaim it anew." -- Matt Turner, Sight & Sound

"Defies convention, challenging what a film can be and how an artist can relate to their audience." -- Dana Reinoos, Hyperallergic
