Sexism|Cinema Film Series: Master

Sexism|Cinema is a feminist film series. In 1965, the term "sexism" was coined. In light of this historical marker, Sexism|Cinema began in 2015 as film series which considers how sexism is embedded, endorsed, and/or challenged in the cinema.

On September 7th at 7:30 PM, we will be screening Master, starring Regina Hall. Writer-director Mariama Diallo delivers a powerful debut feature with thrills, chills, and searing social commentary. As three women of color try to find their place at a prestigious New England university they're haunted by both the insidious elitism at the heart of the school and the malevolent presence that curses it. Following the film, Dr. Aretha Marbley of Texas Tech's Educational Psychology, Leadership, & Counseling department.
