In the years after the birth of second-wave feminism in the 1960s, female directors began incorporating the spirit of the movement into their films. In particular, female directors began turning their cameras on themselves, and other women, in order to tell their own stories without interference. With IN OUR OWN WORDS: FEMINIST NON-FICTION FILMS OF THE 70S, Spectacle presents a collection of (mostly) female-directed films, each with the aim of shedding light on underrepresented stories of women’s lives. From girls growing up, and women incarcerated, in the United States, to Native matriarchal societies in Canada, to a repressive boarding school in England, these films tell women’s stories, with minimal narration or outside voices. Even though these films were made 40 years ago, they beg the question: how much has actually changed, and what has stayed the same?More info & schedule See more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
