Description

A UCLA student film by Russell Kinston, starring Linda Jassim. A beautifully photographed, wryly humorous study of a nervous young model's first nude assignment posing for a life drawing class, and her dramatic confrontation with a disapproving boy friend at the close of the class session.
Award winner: 1971 Bellevue Film Festival, 1971 Independent Filmmaker's Competition, Central Michigan University.
'In my view, the best of the narrative films in the competition, POSING offers a penetrating insight into the unspoken consciousness of a girl modeling for an art class. Photography, editing and sound fused to reach below the surface into the psychological conditions of the film's characters.' - Owen Shapiro, Judge, INDEPENDENT FILMMAKER'S COMPETITION. ADULT
