Starlight celebrates modern avant-garde made by women, including films by Miranda July, Karen Yasinsky, Basma Alsharif, and Kelly Gallagher.

Anchored by Kelly Gallagher's video essay "The Herstory of the Female Filmmaker", this program celebrates the contributions of some modern women artists to avant-garde film and video art. The films that follow are thoughtful, probing pieces focusing on moments of violence as they're experienced through media ("Life is an Opinion, Fire a Fact" by Karen Yasinsky), femininity and the surveillance state ("The Amateurist" by Miranda July), and the aftermath of attacks in Gaza ("Everywhere was the Same" by Basma Alsharif).
