Women Behind the Lens: Battle of the Sexes – Presented by The Kansas City Library, Plaza Branch
February 17, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm CST
This annual screening-and-discussion series continues in February with more psychological studies of films helmed by female directors.
As the women’s top-ranked tennis player, Billie Jean King, and ex-men’s champion and serial hustler Bobby Riggs prepared to play in their made-for-TV extravaganza in 1973, each fought more personal and complex battles. Directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton. The post-screening discussion is led by psychoanalyst Mari Hayes and film critic Lonita Cook. (2017, PG-13)
Presented in partnership with the Greater Kansas City and Topeka Psychoanalytic Center
