Women in 1930's Cinema: The Women

Published kaithleen - Sat, 03/17/2018 - 3:33pm

On Tuesday, March 20th, Lisa Klug will be screening "The Women" for the series that features women in 1930s cinema at 7pm located at the Civic Media Center, 433 S. Main St.

This film series explores the differences in culture between the 1930’s and now. During an age when women were still seen as “housewives and mothers” only, roles for women could be seen as surprisingly progressive.

During this era of #MeToo, and the rise of female directors, it’s interesting to look back at a time just twelve to fifteen years after women first got to vote in this country and were allowed in “co-ed” colleges. Our grandmothers and great grandmothers lived in a world where “equality” as we know it did not exist. How did they deal with attitudes about sex, love, and laws regarding females? The movies we will show have women as the lead characters, and almost all of them go against tradition. It’s a fascinating look at where we came from and perhaps where we are going.

About the creator of this series: Lisa Klug has lived in or near Gainesville most of her life, although she has traveled the country extensively. She comes from a family of artists, and is a huge fan of all films, both old and new.
