LESBIANS ON SCREEN: HOW FAR HAVE WE COME? Film series at Star and Shadow Cinema




A series of classic and provocative films giving a taste of how lesbians have been represented on the big screen from 1968 to the present.  The audience is warmly invited to stay for post-film discussions considering how far we have come with representing lesbians on screen.  Have we made progress?


Organisers: Dr Jacky Collins and Dr Julie Scanlon from Northumbria University.  There will be a brief introduction to each film and opportunity for discussion after the films.  The screenings and discussions are for WOMEN ONLY – ALL WOMEN WELCOME.
