Taking the place of this month’s WIFT Wednesdays, presented by Women in Film and Television Florida, is a special screening of the documentary film Miss Representation. While not a Florida made film, its message is universal. Writer, Producer and Director Jennifer Siebel Newsom challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls while exposing how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. Well known women Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho, Rosario Dawson, Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric and legendary activist Gloria Steinem share their stories throughout the film.
The showing will begin at 6:00pm at Urban ReThink, with a discussion afterward (courtesy of FemCity Orlando and WIFT-FL) will be moderated by friend of the show and Duchess of Orlando, Colleen Burns of Yelp Orlando. Tickets for this screening are $10 for non-members, $5 for members of either WIFT or FemCity and may be purchased here.
