ALABAMA-SUITE 101 THE MUSEUM ARTS, HOUSTON i- . H- —«tf iT-- ___________! REBEL FEMALES Saturdays. January 14 - February 11 Inspired by the "Rebel Males" of our 1992 series. REBEL FEMALES highlights 6 feature films and 4 short films that explore the way women in film have resisted convention and exploded stereotypes of what it means to be a "woman." The film industry, both in Hollywood and abroad, has been notorious for its limited portrayal of women. In recent years, actresses have complained (rightfully) that there are "no good roles for women.' meaning that there are few roles that reflect the diversity in women's personalities and experiences. Yet there seem to be plenty of roles that perpetuate the madonna/whore stereotype of women. With the popularity of films such as THELMA AND LOUISE, it is becoming increasingly evident that actresses and female audiences want to see women of action, women who transgress stereotypes, and complicated women who fall outside of a good/evil paradigm. The films selected for this series take a historical look at a few of these transgressive female characters. The women in these films deal with a multitude of problems that come with living in a patriarchal culture: desire for a meaningful career and power (BABY FACE, CHRISTOPHER STRONG and A TAXING WOMAN); physical power and the use of violence (GUN CRAZY and HEROIC TRIO); and the search for sexual fulfillment on her own terms (SHE'S GOTTA HAVE IT). The short subjects included reflect the work of contemporary independent women filmmakers dealing with such issues as lesbian desire and relationships (CENTRAL PARK. CRUEL, and TINY AND RUBY) and genderbending in its most entertaining form (DREAM GIRLS). -Cara DeBusk. series curator This series is cosponsored by the Women's Studies Program at the University of Houston. Society as a whole is diminished by homophobia. Not only arc gay men and lesbians and their families affected by oppression, but each person in our community suffers from intolerance inflicted on others.
