Talking Back to the Screen: Feminism & Film Criticism

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.
