A SOFT WARRIOR

Nina Menkes
USA 1981
11min
V'07

Made at the UCLA Film School in 1981, this was the first cinematic collaboration of Nina Menkes with her sister Tinka. The film documents, in a strange and very beautiful way, a serious illness suffered by Tinka as experienced by her sister Nina. In the movie, Tinka plays Nina - not for the last time. A Soft Warrior was selected as one of the top first projects made at UCLA that year, and was also presented at FILMEX, as well as many other Super-8-festivals.

This film is screened together with The Great Sadness of Zohara.
