Facets Examines Lupino's Hard, Fast and Beautiful
By Kimberly Burke
Twice a month, Facets Teach-In occurs with the aim to create dialogue about significant issues in contemporary culture. This December 4, 2017, "Why aren't women in film?" will examine the 1951 film Hard, Fast and Beautiful directed by Ida Lupino.
The teach-in will be led by Therese Grisham, who teaches film from a feminist and gender studies perspective as well as a history of film. Grisham has written a book Ida Lupino, Director: Her Art and Resilence in a Time of Transition, that will be available for sale and signing at the screening of Lupino's film.
The film shows a mother's drive for her daughter's success of gaining financial and personal independence. Florence Farley stars in the film as a young tennis star torn between romance and her mother's ambitions.
The film begins at 6:30p.m. There is free admission with donations accepted. R.S.V.P. here: www.facets.org
