Screening of Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines - ITVS Community Cinema
Saturday, March 30, 2013 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EDT) Washington, DC
Special advance screening of the documentary Produced by Kelcey Edwards and Directed by Kristy Guevara-Flanagan that premieres in April 2013 on PBS!
Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today, Wonder Women! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society's anxieties about women's liberation. The film goes behind the scenes with TV stars Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman) and Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman), comic writers and artists, and real-life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna, and others, who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A featuring Andy Hersberger, Associate Curator of Geppi's Entertainment Museum and Devon Sanders, blogger and comic book expert. Moderated by Fantastic Forum producer/host Ulysses E. Campbell. There will be light refreshments and prizes!
