Spotlight Screening & Conversation

Professor Marston And The Wonder Women

October 22, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

Spotlight Screening & Conversation

Dir: Angela Robinson, US, 2017, 108 mins

In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, Angela Robinson’s entrancing film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. While Marston’s feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her ‘sexual perversity’, he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston’s muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston (Rebecca Hall) and their lover Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote), two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research–while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.

Writer: Angela Robinson
Cast: Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, Connie Britton, Oliver Platt

This screening will be followed by a conversation about media representations of female desire, bisexuality and polyamory with filmmaker Angela Robinson and writer/activist Eliel Cruz.
