Join us at Harlow Gallery in Hallowell on Thursday, March 24th at 7:00pm for a free screening and discussion of the “Who Does She Think She Is” a riveting documentary by Academy Award-winning producer Pamela Tanner Boll (Born Into Brothels).
The film follows five woman artists as they navigate the challenges of making work outside the elite art world: Riane Eisler (The Chalice and the Blade), The Guerrilla Girls, Maura Reilly (Sackler Center for Feminist Art), Courtney Martin (Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters) and Leonard Shlain (The Alphabet vs. The Goddess). It tackles some of the most pressing issues of our time: parenting and creativity, partnering and independence, economics and art.
Jeannette Catsoulis of the New York Times described it as, “An engaging documentary about the struggle to create art while nurturing life…about answering the call to self-expression in the face of biological imperatives and cultural programming …an enlightening primer on sexism in the art world.”
Participants are welcome to stay after the screening for a discussion of the film led by members of the Kennebec Valley Art Association. Movie Nights at the Harloware always free and open to the public.
“Every school in every town and city should show this film… It is a testimonial to the human Spirit alive and well in the lives of those who dare to stand up and be counted in original ways”. DR. CARA BARKER, The Huffington Post
