The Films of Diane Bonder

cinema roadshow

Diane Bonder has been making lo-fi experimental film and video for 10 years. Shooting super-8 and 16mm in documentary, poetic and semi-narrative styles, she explores autobiographical content, addressing issues of identity, sexuality, addiction, memory, and loss. Her work has been screened internationally at museums, alternative cinemas, festivals and libraries. She lives and works in Brooklyn NY.

“Since her start in the early 90’s Bonder has developed a way to combine various moving-image media and composition strategies (e.g. super-8, 16mm and video shooting in documentary, diary, poetic and semi-narrative styles, along with found-footage and optical printing construction) which enables her to explore, with humor and intelligence, personal and social issues, especially those relating to family and gender identity.” – Berks Filmmakers

“The allusive way in which Bonder’s compelling images relate to the text forms a playful experimental, and engaging esthetic. – Alissa Lebow, Cineaste
