13 Chambers

13 Women Directors | 13 Constraints | 13 Rooms

A room of one’s own for a new breed of anthology film.

Aktionsart and Smarthouse Creative have teamed up to produce 13 CHAMBERS -
a site-specific anthology film inviting 13 women directors to explore the uncanny, supernatural and sublime
in a 1918 dilapidated print shop in Seattle's South Lake Union neighborhood.

The Site

A 1918 building in South Lake Union, formerly a print shop and then a school, which will be torn down imminently.

Much gratitude to MacFarlane Partners for generously donating this space.
