Microscope Gallery presents a rare screening of Vivienne Dick’s 1980 film Liberty’s Booty.
The Irish born filmmaker and seminal figure in New York’s “No Wave” scene, takes an unabashed look at middle-class white prostitution through casual interviews in cinéma vérité with women talking about their life as call-girls. Unsure of whom we are listening to, and as the line between fact and fiction becomes increasingly blurred, Dick seems to suggest that “all women prostitute themselves in some way, to some degree; who’s to say where we should draw a line and why”- as critic and filmmaker Bev Zalcock has stated.
