The Lovelace – A Hotel Happening
Joanie 4 Jackie
The chainletter tapes
In 1995 Miranda July dropped out of college, moved to Portland, Oregon, and typed up a pamphlet that she imagined would be the start of a revolution of girls and women making movies and sharing them with each other. The pamphlet said: “A challenge and a promise: Lady, you send me your movie and I’ll send you the latest Big Miss Moviola Chainletter Tape.”
The name was later changed to „Joanie 4 Jackie“ (for legal reasons) . Each tape was a compilation of 10 movies made by women and girls who had heard about the project and mailed in their work. Every single movie received was accepted and each tape came with a booklet of letters written by each filmmaker to the other women on the compilation.
We’ll show a curated selection of the first chainletter tapes!
