The Filmballad of Mamadada tells the story of Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, unsung member of the New York Dada movement. A poet, artist, model, and public provocateur, the Baroness defied the social and artistic codes of her time. As with many of her female contemporaries, the Baroness’ cultural legacy has been obscured, and in some instances appropriated into the oeuvres of better known male peers. Accounts of her personal life are scarce and often conjectural.
An interview to the directors of The Filmballad of Mamadada will be published in the soon to be released REVS #10 The SATISFACTION issue ( New York based )
