Reminder: “Miss Representation” screenings Wednesday

Here’s one final reminder that screenings of the documentary “Miss Representation” will be held at 1 and 6 p.m. tomorrow (Wednesday, April 24) in the Christie Theatre. They are free and open to the public, and Associate Prof. Christine Smith will speak following the 1 p.m. showing. “Miss Representation” is a documentary film that explores how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The 90-minute film, written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, first premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, which is held annually in Utah, and aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
