Monday 3/6/17 Bechdel Film Club: The Second Mother
Women's Center, Frist 243
7:00pm

The Bechdel Film Club is an opportunity to watch new and classic films that pass the Bechdel Test. The test was created by Allison Bechdel and it highlights how women are underrepresented in film. There are three simple criterion: 
1. There must be two women in the film, both with names.
2. The two women must talk to each other.
3. They must talk about something other than a man. 
 
This week we will screen The Second Mother, a 2015 Brazilian drama film written and directed by Anna Muylaert. The film stars Regina Casé as Val, the hard-working live-in housekeeper of a wealthy family in São Paulo, and portrays the tensions that arise after her daughter Jéssica moves into the family’s house in order to apply for an admission exam at the University of São Paulo. Come with friends or come alone and make friends, then sit back and relax on the comfy bean bag chairs at the Women*s Center. Dinner provided!

Watch the trailer here.

Note on the relevancy of the Bechdel Test – a film can pass and still be totally demeaning to women, but the point of the test is more to highlight, rather than be a true test of gender equality in film
