Girlfriends Intro & post screening discussion

This screening features an introduction and post-screening discussion led by Jemma Desai, the founder of I am Dora, a curatorial initiative that explores how women relate to one another through the medium of film.

Film details

Lena Denham’s Girls’ and Frances Ha’s recent portraits of young women’s confusion and co-dependency have made a phenomenon out of a brand of New York neurosis that is distinctly female. But almost 40 years before these works, debut director Claudia Weill wrote and directed this woefully neglected gem about Susan, a struggling photographer who is forced to fend for herself when her roommate Anne decides to get married.
