RIGHT OUT OF HISTORY - THE MAKING OF JUDY CHICAGO'S DINNER PARTY (1980) [Feature]

USA (MIFF 1981 , Women and Art)
Director: Johanna Demetrakas

For five years feminist artist Judy Chicago worked with a community of four hundred other artists, craftspeople and researchers to create The Dinner Party, a monumental tribute to women of spirit and accomplishment throughout the ages - women whose names have been banished ‘Right Out of History'. For over four of those five years, filmmaker Johanna Demetrakas followed the progress of The Dinner Party, recording for posterity the alternately painstaking and exhilarating process of creating this work of unprecedented scale and beauty.
