What should I wear today? What happens if I sit in front of the camera with a dildo in my hand? Dressing Up and Take Off provide funny answers to these questions. Susan Mogul's Woman's Building is a look back at one of the most important spaces for women in the United States, a place whose primary concerns included self-determination, occupying space, (re)adjusting art history (from which women had been written out and often not even included), and consciousness-raising. Mogul's neighborhood in the Echo Street/L.A. area – her 'hood' – is the setting for Everyday Echo Street: A Summer Diary, a flirtation film. The program is rounded out by a compilation of interviews with women who decided not to have children, staged as a medley (Sing, O Barren Women) and a film about her 88-year-old mother's move, which becomes a walk down memory lane about her and her work as a photographer (Mom's Move). (D.S.)
