Experimental Films of Narcisa Hirsch, Digitized at USC, in the Spotlight

USC Digital Repository

A new USC Fisher Museum of Art exhibition features the work of the pioneering Argentine experimental filmmaker Narcisa Hirsch. Curated by USC Dornsife professor Erin Graff Zivin, Narcisa Hirsch: In Relation features films digitized by USC Digital Library and USC Digital Repository teams from originals held by the Filmoteca Narcisa Hirsch in Argentina, with support from USC Research and Innovation. Project participants included Nicholas Camardo, Stella Castillo, Catherine Gao, Deborah Holmes-Wong, Mike Jones, and Louise Smith.

A leading Argentine newspaper, La Nación, recently highlighted the exhibition in an article about the resurgence of interest in Hirsch's work—much of it a direct result of the digitization of her films here at USC.

"Narcisa Hirsch: In Relation" is on display through December 9.
