The Female Gaze

The Female Gaze

Date: Sunday, June 9

The “male gaze,” largely acknowledged as “the act of depicting women and the world from a masculine, heterosexual perspective that represents women as sexual objects,” has been the dominant viewpoint since the beginning of art and culture — but what happens when women become the subject instead of the object? This conversation will explore the “female gaze” with writers & directors who are reclaiming female agency by (figuratively and literally) shifting viewers’ perspectives, and telling stories that unapologetically place women and their world view at the center.

Panelists: Tanya Saracho (creator/EP, Vida), Kim Raver (director/EP, Tempting Fate), Jenny Bicks (creator/EP, Men in Trees), Joy Blake (producer/writer, Outlander) 

Moderator: Tara Ariano (Extra Hot Great)
