"Miss Representation" Screening at BloomBars

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Miss Representation (2011, 85 min), Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s stunning documentary explores gender oppression of women by the mainstream media.

As part of the Benevolent Media Festival (November 4-7, 2011), BloomBars presents a screening and discussion of “Miss Representation” – a film which examines how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America and challenges the media’s limiting and often disparaging portrayals of women, which make it difficult for the average girl to see herself as powerful.

After our screening, we’ll be led in our discussion by Erica Schlaikjer and Jeff Riecke of Benevolent Media.

 RSVP on Facebook & Invite Your Friends!

*Suggested Donation: $10 to support BloomBars.  Free Popcorn and refreshments provided.

BloomScreen Indie Film Night – is a weekly series of independent and foreign films, accompanied by discussions with filmmakers and other experts.  Our goal is to provide a unique experience that a local Cineplex cannot – an opportunity for discussion that allows a better understanding of issues affecting our communities and our world.

Volunteers wanted! Have a suggestion for a film?  Know a local filmmaker who wants to screen their work?  Want to lend a hand?  Email jonathan@bloombars.com with your ideas.
