Launch of Afterall 16 and screening of Ulrike Ottinger's Madame X: An Absolute Ruler.

In this cult feminist pirate film, the harsh beauty Madame X calls upon women to trade their comfortable but dull lives for a world of danger and adventure on the China seas. Among those that gather aboard her ship, Orlando, are a housewife, a diva, a psychologist, a 'native' beauty, and an artist (played by Yvonne Rainer). Fueled by discontent, their utopia unravels as they begin to ritualize the power games of the outside world.
