Talking Back to the Screen: Feminism & Film CriticismApril 12, 2018, 6:30 pm-8:30 pm
Monthly filmmaking forum presented by Indie Memphis and Crosstown Arts
April topic: Hair & Makeup for Film with Alicia George
In Alice Bolin’s upcoming book, Dead Girls, she writes about moving to L.A. and seeing the city through a white male literary lens, and needing to trust her own eyes rather than what she’s read. Miriam Bale’s path through the male-dominated world of film criticism at New York newspapers was similarly one of learning to trust her own eyes. The two writers will have a dialogue about different ways to engage with writing about film, a misogynistic industry, as women. Dead Girls (which covers Twin Peaks to True Detective) is an essay collection out in June 2018 from William Morrow/ HarperCollins. Alice Bolin teaches nonfiction at the University of Memphis.
Miriam Bale is new Senior Programmer of the Indie Memphis Film Festival.
Doors open at 6:30pm | panel discussion begins at 7pm
