WednesdayAugust 5  @ 4pm @ WRC—Sex & Gender Film Series | PUSSY RIOT: A PUNK PRAYER. On Feb. 21, 2012, members of the feminist art collective Pussy Riot, donning their colorful trademark balaclavas, or ski masks, participated in a 40-second “punk prayer protest” on the altar of Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral before being detained. Arrested and tried for trespassing, wearing “inappropriate” sleeveless dresses and disrupting social order, Nadia, Masha and Katia were accused of religious…s hatred in a trial that reverberated around the world and transformed the face of Russian society. An official selection of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, where it received the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Punk Spirit, PUSSY RIOT: A PUNK PRAYER tells their story with exclusive interviews and unprecedented access to courtroom footage.

Women on Top: Celebrating Women Behind the Camera @ The Art Theatre Co-op in Downtown Champaign. “Hollywood is supposedly a community of forward thinking and progressive people, yet this horrific situation for women directors persists. Gender discrimination stigmatizes our entire industry. Change is essential.”– Kathryn Bigelow                                                                              The Art Theater Co-op is proud to present a summer-long series celebrating women feature film directors. Bringing together an eclectic mix of films representing the breadth and depth of women’s filmmaking, WOMEN ON TOP: CELEBRATING WOMEN BEHIND THE CAMERA is focused on honoring the vision and artistry of women directors while simultaneously highlighting the serious lack of women in film production. Women have directed only 6% of studio feature films in the last year, and in the past five years only one woman has directed more than one studio feature. By celebrating the groundbreaking work of women directors,WOMEN ON TOP aims to stimulate conversation about the overwhelming gender disparity in feature film direction while shining a spotlight on women directors working against all odd

WednesdayAugust 12 @ 9:00pm—Tank Girl (Rachel Talalay, 1995). Loosely based on the comic book series of the same name, Tank Girl is a Crayola-colored, sun-soaked, fight for survival in a futuristic, drought-riddled world. Battling an evil corporation bent on controlling the world’s population through its last water reserves, androgynous punk heroine Rebecca (Lori Petty as the eponymous Tank Girl) and a band of misfit warriors fight to protect the last free water supply and their own independence. Director Rachel Talalay cut her teeth working for John Waters, and skillfully directs an eclectic cast including Petty, Ice-T, Naomi Watts, Iggy Pop, and Malcolm McDowell in this wild, surreal, art-pop film. Bolstered by a soundtrack curated by Courtney Love and featuring the likes of Bjork, Devo, Hole, and Portishead, Tank Girl embodies 1990’s Riot Grrl style, independence, and wit. “Tank Girl’s” screen assault has a “no prisoners” attitude…dazzling pyrotechnics, state-of-the-art makeup, a lavish song-and-dance production, nifty animation reflecting its comic book origins and a thumping rock soundtrack.” Variety     

WednesdaySeptember 16 @ 9:00pm—Love & Basketball (Gina Prince-Bythewood, 2000). The directorial debut of screenwriter Gina Prince-Bythewood (director of 2014’s highly-praised Beyond The Lights), Love & Basketball is a heady combination of sport, sexual politics, female alienation, and the desire for emotional attachments. Childhood friends Quincy (Omar Epps) and Monica (Sanaa Lathan) have always wanted the same thing: to play professional basketball. Following their friendship and professional aspirations over the course of thirteen years, the film is a quiet but forceful reminder that all is not fair in love and sports–especially for women who want to play on the court and not cheer on the sidelines. A poignant and sympathetic film carried by marvelous performances from Epps and Lathan, Love & Basketball heralded Prince-Bythewood as a contemporary female director to watch–a pronouncement she has been making good on over the last 15 years. “Stylishly shot and bursting with visual and sexual energy, this is confident black women’s film-making and an eloquent tribute to the girl with the permanently grazed knees – and about time too.” Time Out “A startling debut full of emotional depth and political punch.” Film.com

The Art Theater Co-op is the country’s only cooperatively owned art house theater. As a community-driven organization, the Art Theater is dedicated to being a vibrant and welcoming space where audiences old and new can enjoy a classic cinema experience. The Art Theater’s mission is to cultivate an engaged audience for art house, independent, and foreign films while promoting local filmmakers and strengthening the art house cooperative movement.

John Street, Champaign. The Queer Women’s Group is open to undergraduate and graduate students who self-identify as a queer woman (lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, queer, questioning, etc). Like other process-oriented therapy groups, we will attend to interpersonal relationships, which may include intimacy, boundaries, and self-awareness, but members may come to group with a variety of concerns, such as depression, adjustment, anxiety, relationship issues, and other personal concerns. We hope to create a safe space for queer women to discuss issues relevant to them and the LBTQ community (such as coming out, identity, relationships with family and friends, dating, and oppression). The specific focus of the group will be shaped by the group’s unique needs. Start date TBD. Therapy groups at the Counseling Center are confidential. To inquire about a group screening, please call the Counseling Center at 217.333.3704.http://counselingcenter.illinois.edu/
