A SOFT WARRIOR (Super-8mm/11 min/1981), made at the UCLA Film School, was Nina Menkes's first cinematic collaboration with her sister Tinka. The film documents, in a strange and beautiful way, a serious illness suffered by Tinka as experienced by her sister Nina, and also expresses how art is a transformative response to life. In the movie, Tinka plays Nina--not for the last time. A SOFT WARRIOR was selected as one of the top first projects made at UCLA that year, and was also presented at FILMEX, and many other Super 8 festivals.
