Don’t Call Me Honey: Fierce Women of Film

12:00 am


Some of the baddest, fiercest women ever seen on screen are the focus of Don’t Call Me Honey: Fierce Women of Film, the Wexner Center’s summer film series. The 17-film series considers “fierce” in all its forms and features work from across all eras by trailblazing filmmakers, writers, and actors such as Chantal Akerman, Ida Lupino, Dorothy Arzner, Ava DuVernay, Sigourney Weaver, Pam Grier, and many more. Don’t Call Me Honey begins Thursday, July 7.

The series was cocurated by a group of scholars, artists, and curators including Vera Brunner-Sung (Filmmaker & Assistant Professor, Department of Theatre, Ohio State); Jennifer Lange (Wexner Center for the Arts); Laura Larson (Artist, Associate Professor of Photography & Integrated Media, Ohio University); Sandra Macpherson (Associate Professor, Department of English, Ohio State); April Martin (Filmmaker & Artivist, Oakland, CA); Astria Suparak (Artist & Curator, Oakland); and David Filipi (Wexner Center for the Arts).

Tickets: $8 general public, $6 students, Wex members, and seniors. Tickets on sale soon. One ticket to our double features admits you to either film (or both). Feel free to join us just for the second film at the time listed.
