Event description

Description

Join us for our Teach-In series featuring a screening Ida Lupino’s Hard, Fast, and Beautiful followed by a discussion with Therese Grisham.

In Hard, Fast and Beautiful, Lupino looks at a mother’s relentless drive for her daughter’s success as a means of resisting the obstacles women face in gaining and possessing financial and personal independence. Florence Farley stars as a young tennis star who is torn between romance and her mother's ambitions.

Therese Grisham teaches film from feminist and gender studies perspectives at Oakton Community College, serves on the editorial committee of desistfilm, and is the co-author of a new book, Ida Lupino, Director: Her Art and Resilience in a Time of Transition.
