I feel remiss in not yet posting this month since it’s Women’s History Month and I’ve yet to post a film review for this week. (In my defense, I was out of the country.) Next week, I promise we’ll return to our regularly scheduled programming.
For now, enjoy a few links to women in film and women’s history.
If you haven’t already, check out the hashtag #FilmHerStory over on twitter. In recent years, there’s been a large number of biopics featuring dudes–for example, The Imitation Game, Mr. Turner, Selma, The Theory of Everything–but hardly any featuring ladies. What women would you want to see films about?
If you’re a House of Cards addict like me, Bustle has an article about 9 Feminist Moments from Season Three. And yes, I’m all about the ladies on that show. Jackie Sharp, Claire Underwood, and now Heather Dunbar. Also, four of the 13 episodes this season were directed by women. Robin Wright directed two episodes, as did Agnieszka Holland.
If you’re in Los Angeles, Seeking Our Story has monthly screenings of women-directed films.
Go forth. Be awesome.
