Movies with Meaning Fall 2013 Series

September 12th, 2013 by Delilah

Generation M: Misogyny in the Media: September 17th @ 7pm in Hyde 120

Despite the achievements of the women’s movement over the past four decades, misogyny remains a persistent force in American culture. In this important documentary, Thomas Keith, professor of philosophy at California State University-Long Beach, looks specifically at misogyny and sexism in mainstream American media, exploring how negative definitions of femininity and hateful attitudes toward women get constructed and perpetuated at the very heart of our popular culture.

“Gun Hill Road”: October 15th @ 7pm in Hyde 120

Gun Hill Road is the story of a family in transition. It is the story of a young man exploring his sexuality in an intolerant and judgmental world and his exploration’s impact on his relationship with his parents and himself.

No Dumb Questions:  November 20th @ 7pm in Hyde 120

This lighthearted and poignant documentary profiles three sisters, ages 6, 9 and 11, struggling to understand why and how their Uncle Bill is becoming a woman. These girls love their Uncle Bill, but will they feel the same way when he becomes their new Aunt Barbara? With just weeks until Bill’s first visit as Barbara, the sisters navigate the complex territories of anatomy, sexuality, personality, gender.  Their reactions are funny, touching, and distinctly different. This film offers a fresh perspective on a complex situation from a family that insists there are no dumb questions.

White Like Me”: December 10th @ 7pm in Hyde 120

White Like Me, based on the work of acclaimed anti-racist educator and author Tim Wise, explores race and racism in the U.S. through the lens of whiteness and white privilege.

Hyde 220

Dominicans dominate major league baseball. Almost one-third of all baseball players are born outside the US, and Dominicans are the most heavily represented group.

factors that produce so many baseball players? What difficulties do they
overcome to reach the major leagues? What challenges do they face here in the
United States? What about accusations of falsification of documents or
exploitative buscones? How does all of this relate to Dominican ideas about
race and to the Dominican educational system? Why should we care?

Though the convictions were ultimately overturned the incident sparked a series of violent riots and confrontations that forced America to change some of its practices.
