Wonder Women!

I’m extremely pleased to have been asked to appear on one of the Banter discussion panels – which are regularly organised by Irish Times journalist Jim Carroll to discuss cultural topics.

During the GAZE International LGBT Film Festival there will be a screening of the fabulous Kristy Guevara-Flanagan documentary Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines, at 4.30pm on Saturday August 3 at the Lighthouse cinema.

After the screening there will be a Banter discussing pop culture’s representation of female power on screens and in print, hosted by Jim, and including me, director Kristy Guevara-Flanagan, and Film Fatale’s Anna Taylor. The ticket price for the documentary includes the Banter discussion.

There are several pleasures for me in doing such an event, since it’s a topic I think about and talk about quite a bit, but I was also one of the backers for the documentary’s Kickstarter campaign, so it feels like a harmonious synchronicity to be afforded the opportunity to examine this subject in relation to Kristy’s film.

Here’s a trailer for Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines – I hope many of you will attend this rare screening in Dublin.
