CGiii Comment

T H E L A D I E S A L M A N A C K
is a feature-­length experimental narrative film written & directed by Daviel Shy, based on the novel of the same title by Djuna Barnes.

The film is a kaleidoscopic tribute to women’s writing through the friendships, jealousies, flirtations and publishing woes of authors and artists in 1920’s Paris.

Arranged month-by-month like an almanac the story is told by three narrators: Hélène Cixous, Luce Irigaray, and Monique Wittig. Seminal texts of these radical feminist writers were published in the 1970’s: the same decade The Ladies Almanack was reprinted for a public readership. Each character is a hybrid of the historically researched figure and the contemporary artist who portrays her; with the exception of one person, Hélène Cixous. She will be playing herself in the film and is therefore the sole character where the past catches the present in continuous being.
