Amherst Scholar Amelie Hastie to speak at Film Series

Amherst College scholar rethinks female authorship using Hollywood actress turned producer-director Lupino’s first release. The film follows in flashback a wayward mother’s journey through an unwanted pregnancy. A forbidden subject for movies prior to Lupino’s effort to expand awareness of women’s issues, such as rape, bigamy and male dominance.

This talk will be held Monday, October 31st, 7 PM at the Howe Library in Hanover NH.  This event is free and open to the public, part of the Ciné Salon at 20 Series (co-sponsored by the Department of Film & Media Studies)
