W Exclusive: See Maya Hawke Transform Into the Legendary Artist Kathy Acker

October 28, 2019

Read it here on W (written by Stephanie Eckardt).

An exclusive on Aïda Ruilova’s short, Memory Xperiment: composed of a series of vignettes, the film stars Hawke as a 20-something navigating the early stages of adulthood in the ’70s through sex and writing—whether splayed out on the floor surrounded by titles like Violette Leduc’s Thérèse and Isabelle, shaving off her hair, or scribbling away in the back of her workplace (a strip club). Ahead of its premiere at Nitehawk Cinema Shorts Festival next month, get an exclusive sneak peek via Ruilova’s annotated, behind-the-scenes Polaroids, here.
