The Man Who Envied Women

Yvonne Rainer, The Man Who Envied Women

In Yvonne Rainer’s 1985 film The Man Who Envied Women, a Lacanian theorist and his artist lover break up amidst the rapidly gentrifying backdrop of New York in the mid-eighties. The woman remains unseen while the man is played by two different actors, who seduce women by spitting out meaningless critical theory. The 81-year old filmmaker will take part in a Q&A after the screening with conceptual filmmaker (and Brown PhD student) Cassandra Guan. Shelly Silver’s 4-minute video The Lamps will also be shown.
