There is a great documentary making its rounds called Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines that traces the evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. The film covers the birth of the comic book superheroine to the blockbuster television series, while looking at how popular representation of powerful women often reflects society’s own anxieties about women’s liberation. The film was recently apart of the documentary series Independent Lens and you can still watch the film on PBS website for free. However if you want some post film discussion in the comfort of your own bed or couch , you can head over to ITVS OVEE on April 24 where they will be doing a free screening of Wonder Women! . I highly suggest you watch this film anyway that you can. Even you aren’t a comic book or Wonder Woman film it’s an intriguing film to watch.
Asterisks denotes that the filmmaker will be in attendance for Q&A after screening
