Growing Up Female

Dirs. Julia Reichert, Jim Klein
1971, 50min, DCP

 

This landmark of feminist cinema profiles six women—ages four to thirty-five—to explore the ways in which they are socialized in a patriarchal society.

 
Janie's Janie

Dir. Geri Ashur, Peter Barton, Marilyn Mulford, Stephanie Pawleski
1971, 25min, 16mm

 

“First I was my father’s Janie, then I was my Charlie’s Janie, now I’m Janie’s Janie.” This indispensable dispatch from the burgeoning women’s movement profiles a Newark housewife who, after leaving her abusive husband, begins to carve out a life of her own.

Betty Tells Her Story

Dir. Liane Brandon
1972, 20min, digital

 

This poignant tale of beauty, identity and a dress is considered a classic of documentary filmmaking and the independent film of the women’s movement. In this unconventionally structured documentary, Betty tells her story twice. The contrast between the two stories is haunting.
