Sisters With Transistors

director: Lisa Rovner
original title: Sisters With Transistors
country: United Kingdom
year: 2020
running time: 82 min.


A great lesson on irreplaceable, female visionaries in the development of electronics during the twentieth century. Imagination between poetry and technology. Satisfaction for artists whom the world has only appreciated in recent years: Daphne Oram of the BBC radio laboratory; Pauline Oliveros, who coined the term "deep listening"; Laurie Spiegel, whose music flies through space and time on the Voyager Golden Record, and many others.

An introduction of the programmer of the Siren test section, Pavel Klusák:


Franco-American director, writer and artist Lisa Rovner (1979) lives in London. She makes films, music videos and commercials and she has worked with fashion brands such as Acne, Liam Gillick and Maison Martin Margiela. She is interested in sound, archiving and bringing politics and philosophy to film. Her work has been presented, for example, at the FIAC Art Fair, at the Paris Film Festival and in the Anthology Film Archives. Sisters with Transistors is her first documentary.
