Join us for a special screening of the award-winning documentary WONDER WOMEN! THE UNTOLD STORY OF AMERICAN SUPERHEROINES.
The film tells the story of Wonder Woman's creation, explores her enduring popularity, and examines how the portrayal of female action heroes has shifted from decade to decade, depending on developments in broader American society.
WONDER WOMEN! also encourages girls to be creators of the media they want to see and goes behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers/artists, and real-life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem and Kathleen Hanna.
Riveter member Erin Prather Stafford is Executive Producer of WONDER WOMEN! and will be moderating a panel afterwards about current representation of women in film. There will also be a raffle for some WONDERFUL prizes.
Light food and drink will also be provided. Ticket proceeds from the event will benefit Women Texas Film Festival (WTxFF), which promotes established and emerging female storytellers in film and TV, celebrating the range and power of women's voices. WTxFF screens qualified films that have women in at least one key creative role: Writer, Producer, Director, Cinematographer, Editor.
The nonprofit organization is based in Dallas.
