Yesterday Women Making Films (India) published the first of a series of feminist critiques I am writing about superhero films. This one focused on the latest installment of the Batman franchise, The Batman, which is currently holding the number one spot at the box office. It is a dark film brimming with violence and angry, vengeful men. You can read it here.
My second article for Series: Superhero films through a feminist lens will be published next week.
Women Making Films is a not-for-profit community that, according to its website, "strives to connect, facilitate and showcase the work of its members through film screenings, workshops, film festivals and other interactive programmes." Vaishnavi Sundar, WMF’s founder and a filmmaker and women's rights activist from India, is dedicated to countering the inequality in the film industry and creating a global solidarity of female filmmakers. Her latest film, Dysphoric, is a four-part documentary series on the rise of gender identity ideology and its effects on women and girls, especially in developing countries.
