Film Series to be held in honor of Women’s History Month

2009-03-02

The Department of Women’s Studies is holding a film series during the month of March in honor of Women’s History Month.  The film series, which is free and open to the public, will present six feature films over four evenings in March.

The film series will begin at 8 p.m. Friday, March 6, in room 120A of the University Downtown Center, with the showing of the 1975 version of The Stepford Wives, followed by the 2004 remake of the movie.  Each subsequent screening will take place at 8 p.m. on Wednesdays in Academic A, room G019.  On March 11, the series will screen A Question of Silence and Antonia’s Line, on March 18, Thelma and Louise, and on March 25, Daughters of the Dust.

The series will include handouts with film notes and post screening moderated discussion.  The films were chosen for their status in contemporary film history, their critique of the status quo of women’s situations in the social world, and their value as highly artistic representations of women in patriarchy.
