Women on Top: Celebrate Women Behind the Camera

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

The Art Theater Co-op is proud to present a summer-long series celebrating women feature film directors. Bringing together an eclectic mix of films representing the breadth and depth of women’s filmmaking, WOMEN ON TOP: CELEBRATING WOMEN BEHIND THE CAMERA is focused on honoring the vision and artistry of women directors while simultaneously highlighting the serious lack of women in film production. Women have directed only 6% of studio feature films in the last year, and in the past five years only one woman has directed more than one studio feature. By celebrating the groundbreaking work of women directors, WOMEN ON TOP aims to stimulate conversation about the overwhelming gender disparity in feature film direction while shining a spotlight on women directors working against all odds. Films include Born in Flames (Lizzie Borden 1983; June 3rd at 9:00pm), Daisies (Vera Chytilová, 1966; July 15th at 9:00pm); Tank Girl (Rachel Talalay, 1995; August 12th at 9:00pm), and Love & Basketball (Gina Prince-Bythewood, 2000; September 16th at 9:00pm)
