ACMI Long Play Season
ACMI will be screening two documentaries on sexuality and feminism as part of its Long Play season from 27th December 2012 to 13th January 2013.
WHEN: 27/12/2012 to 13/01/2013
WHERE: ACMI, Federation Square, Melbourne
The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) presents a must see documentary about the journey of feminism through the allegory of the much loved and lusted after, Wonder Woman.
Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines resides at ACMI for the summer holidays as part of its Long Play program.
Filmmaker Kristy Guevara-Flanagan charts the history of Wonder Woman, from her beginnings in the 1940’s by a man intent on providing a strong female role model for his daughters in a male dominated superhero genre, through to her change of profession as a fashion boutique owner, wife of Superman and kitchen goddess in the 1960s; through to her heralded comeback as a feminist icon on the cover of Ms. Magazine in the 1970s. Guevara-Flanagan also gathers a cast of interviewees to discuss the impacts of feminism today.
She states: “I loved the idea of looking at something as populist as comics to reveal our cultural obsessions, and in particular, how women’s roles have changed over time. The narratives of our most iconic superheroes, told and re-told over decades, boldly outline our shifting values.”
ACMI Programmer Kristy Matheson says, “Wonder Women… wraps graphic novel styling, rock aesthetic and four decades of sexual politics into a mighty smart package. Don’t be fooled, this isn’t just another chick-flick.”
In addition to Wonder Women! ACMI’s First Look Program will be screening Sexy Baby by filmmakers Ronna Gradua and Jill Bauer. Coming straight from the Tribeca Film Festival, Sexy Baby looks at ‘raunch culture’ and the cyber age. With the internet a mainstay of daily life, it has arguably influenced our notions and representations of and relationship to sexuality.
“Ronna Gradus and Jill Bauer’s compelling documentary focuses on three very different women, all navigating this new landscape in staggeringly different ways. This is essential viewing for anyone interested in the current temperature of our society and what the future might hold” says Matheson.
Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines screens at ACMI from 27 December 2012 to 13 January 2013. Sexy Baby screens 3 to 6 January 2013. For tickets and more information visit
