  • Mike at the Movies Presents: Extraordinary Women in Film

    When: Saturday, January 24, 2015 - 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
    Where: Auditorium

    Join us for another discussion with film historian Michael Smith for the Adult and Teen Winter Reading Club, "Escape the Ordinary!"

    Female directors only account for 3% of all the movies that have been made. Their work has often consequently been overlooked or downplayed in many official film histories. Yet a close scrutiny of the history of cinema reveals that women -- from the silent era through today, in every national cinema around the world -- have not only been present in all of the major historical movements but have been responsible for making significant contributions to them. This talk will highlight the work of female directors from Germany in the Weimar era (Leontine Sagan's Madchen in Uniform), classic Hollywood cinema (Dorothy Arzner's Dance, Girl, Dance), independent American film (Ida Lupino's The Hitch-Hiker), the French New Wave (Agnes Varda's Cleo from 5 to 7), the Danish "Dogme 95" movement (Lone Scherfig's Italian for Beginners) and more.
