Chick flicks

Critics talk a lot about the male cinematic gaze and the masculine domination of film throughout the medium’s history. So where do women fit in the modern progressive landscape? The Bantam Theater, in collaboration with Richmond’s Studio Two Three, presents Females and the Frame, a 70-minute program of regionally and internationally-produced short films featuring only female directors. Diverse and powerful, these directors and their films make the case to invert Hollywood’s gender standards.

Saturday 4/6 $8.50, 7:30pm. The Bantam Theater, 609 E. Market St. 566-2987.

    Matthew, I thought you might find this article interesting with respect to female filmmakers and their place in the modern progressive landscape.

    Also, the “Chick Flicks” tagline, are the ‘Chick’s’ the women filmmakers and the ‘Flick’s’ their work? Come on, it’s not clever or appropriate. Not to mention it’s entirely misleading where the content of the program is concerned.
