Reel Women in Film: The Divine Order
Texas Spirit Theater | NR | 96 min. | Comedy, Drama
March 27, 2020 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Join the Bullock Museum for a screening and conversation about the film The Divine Order.
In 1971, a young housewife organizes the women of her town to petition for the right to vote in Switzerland.
Petra Biondina Volpe wrote and directed this narrative of the Swiss women's suffrage tale. The Divine Order disarms the heavy nature of the subject matter by adding humor as a storytelling device. Additionally, it encapsulates the decade of the 1970s in a well researched and less stylized manner than other period peices, which makes the costume design by Linda Harper stand out.
This screening is part of Reel Women in Film, a film series that highlights the filmic works of women in front of or behind the camera. In its second season, focus will be on ideas of empowerment seen through the lens of fashion and activism. Additionally, we will look at those within the field of filmmaking that are in the periphery, the costume designers. This evening's program is shown in conjunction with our Sister Suffragists exhibition, celebrating the suffrage centennial along with our Fashion Forward exhibition, which explores how the fashion innovations of yesterday impact our closets today. This program includes a film screening and Q&A. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Please note: Entrance for this screening will be at the IMAX Lobby doors.
