L'Alternativa Parallel

Anne-Marie Miéville

Mon Cher Sujet

Anne-Marie Miéville's trajectory is the infinite attempt to embody the difficulties and contradictions, struggles, hopes and responsibilities of women in their public and private lives, from childhood to the grave. Daring to take their entire place in the elaboration, conduct and diction of language and thought; aiming at a self-accomplishment in creative work, opus and person; in the face of solitude and poverty, transforming their traditional relegations to silence, oblation or compassion into talking obstinacies of meaning, truth and emotion; conjugating images, texts and musics by listening to and regarding the world's objects and bodies wrested from the temptation of their vanities. Requiring love despite the perplexities, hesitations, disillusions and failures, living their radical determination beside men.

Jean-Luc Godard, John Cassavetes and Frederick Wiseman)
