Louder Now! "Privilege" (1990)

Louder Now! "Privilege"

Season

Director: Y Rainer
Certificate: Unknown
Length:
Format: 16mm
Language: English

Rainer's 6th feature is a genuinely subversive movie about menopause. Out of a subject that has been denied on film by virtually everybody, Rainer has fashioned a witty, risky work about sexual identity and the unequal economies of race, gender and class.

Guest speakers: Dr Rosie White (Northumbria University) and Dr Cate Degnen (Newcastle University). Dr White’s research interests focus on the representation of active female protagonists in popular culture. Dr Degnen researches experiences of ageing and of social change; the ageing self, narrativity and temporality.

LOUDER NOW! is brought to the Star and Shadow with support from The Gender Research Group at Newcastle University.

All LOUDER NOW! events are free to attend (although £1 membership to the Star and Shadow is required).
