The Town Hall Affair archiveIn front of an audience of literary heavyweights gathered at New York's Town Hall, pugnacious American novelist Norman Mailer squares up against a panel of prominent feminist advocates including Germaine Greer, Jill Johnston and Diana Trilling. The occasion is captured in the documentary Town Bloody Hall. The Town Hall Affair, directed by Elizabeth LeCompte, features extended clips from the film and revisits that explosive night with Enver Chakartash, Ari Fliakos, Greg Mehrten, Erin Mullin, Scott Shepherd, Maura Tierney and Kate Valk playing the real-life participants onstage. Layered with additional text and footage, The Town Hall Affair draws on experimental techniques to delve into the revolutionary fervour of 1970s' feminist thinking, and lets us consider who we were then and who we have become.
