Girls Rule!

Wednesdays, July 16 – August 27, 2014

Join us Wednesdays this summer for a series of films by, for, and about women. We start things off with the inspiration for this series, Lukas Moodysson’s WE ARE THE BEST!, recommended for girls of any age as well as their parents, partners and friends. Next we revisit CLUELESS, Amy Heckerling’s 1995 re-working of Jane Austen’s Emma, before delving into two selections from the ’80s, Hayao Miyazaki’s NAUSICAA OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND and LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FABULOUS STAINS. Several weeks later our adventure wraps up with a double feature of films featuring women breaking away from society’s expectations, Susan Seidelman’s DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN and Vera Chytilová’s anarchic, revolutionary Czech New Wave film, DAISIES. See below for the complete lineup.
