Woman As Witch Film Series At Roxy Cinema
The Woman As Witch Film Series at Roxy Cinema examines themes of women as the monster, demon, and witch, but also as people in power who control their own destiny. Women have been feared throughout all the ages; but not in the beginning. Females were worshipped. They celebrated nature, sexuality, creativity, and the cycles of life. Remnants of female deities got buried into the earth and the early religions disappeared.
Looking at women through the lens of witch or supernatural is an interesting one in film. Women were powerful and dynamic in the pre-code films before America took a turn towards the puritanical. Our Woman As Witch Film Series will run through September 2022 and features an exceptional array of titles including Queen Of The Damned, Femme Fatale, Species, The Craft, Black Sunday, Jennifer’s Body, Alien 3, Cat People, Carrie, Johnny Guitar, Bitter Moon, Lady Sings The Blues, Passion Of Joan Of Arc, Remember My Name, and Women In The Dunes. Mostly all on 35mm with more titles being added.
