Whose Story?: Working Class Women On Screen
Tue 9 Oct 20:30 BFI Reuben Library
As we celebrate the working class actors and their performances in British cinema this month, join our special guests to explore depictions of working class women and girls on screen, asking: what makes a working class heroine? How have working class women been portrayed on screen in British cinema, from the explosion of the British New Wave in the 1960s to the present? How have these portrayals both reinforced and challenged stereotypes about working class women? What does seeing a diverse range of working class heroines on screen mean to audiences? Join us for this timely discussion hosted by Sight & Sound's Anna Coatman.
Free to ticket holders of Bend It Like Beckham on Tue 9 Oct 18:15 NFT3 (must be booked via the box office due to limited availability), otherwise £6.50.
