PANEL: Girl Power: Women Behind the Lens
FRIDAY, MARCH 18
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM | Mayer Theater | Register
In the early 1990s, a group of young women in punk rock declared Revolution Girl Style, and took over the means of production by forming labels, making fanzines, creating art, and directing films. In 2015, the film industry is under investigation by the U.S. government for gender bias and inequity. Filmmakers and scholars will discuss the quest for girl power in Hollywood and beyond.
Panelists include Angela Boatwright, Karyn Kusama, Janice Rhoshalle Littlejohn, and Leena Pendharkar. Moderated by Vanessa Newell, Associate Professor, School of Film and Television, Loyola Marymount University
