BFI Southbank, Sat 8 March 6.30pm

A special documentary screening on the occasion of International Women's Day and tying into the Birds Eye View Film Festival (happening in April 2014). 

From the Birds Eye View website:

"Join us on International Women's Day for a special screening of Kristy Guevara-Flanagan's Wonder Woman! The Untold Story of American Superheroines, plus announcements about our festival in April.

WONDER WOMEN! traces the fascinating birth, evolution and legacy of the Wonder Woman figure and introduces audiences to a dynamic group of fictional and real-life superheroines fighting for positive role models for girls, both on screen and off.

From the birth of the 1940s comic book heroine, Wonder Woman, to the blockbusters of today, WONDER WOMEN! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society’s anxieties about strong and influential women.

Directed by Kristy Guevara-Flanagan and produced by Kelcey Edwards, WONDER WOMEN! offers a vital and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated super hero genre and is the perfect film to celebrate International Women’s Day. Come and join us and discover exclusive news about the 2014 Birds Eye View festival."
