It's My Turn

Dir. Claudia Weill
With Jill Clayburgh, Michael Douglas, Charles Grodin
1980, 91min, 16mm

 

Girlfriends director Claudia Weill made her major studio debut with this refreshingly down-to-earth romantic comedy (scripted by Dirty Dancing writer Eleanor Bergstein), which updates the classic screwball formula for the women’s lib era. Jill Clayburgh is a harried mathematics professor whose relationship with her live-in boyfriend (Grodin) has gone stale—could a fling with her hunky new brother-in-law (Douglas) be the answer? Bonus: a Diana Ross theme song.

Post-screening Q&A
With director Claudia Weill

 
Joyce at 34

Dir. Joyce Chopra
1972, 28min, 16mm

 

Director Joyce Chopra collaborated with Claudia Weill for this searching self-portrait, which explores the conflict women face in balancing motherhood and their careers.
