Come celebrate International Women’s Day with the Sydney Premiere of Kristy Guevara-Flanagan‘s Wonder Women: The Untold Story of American Superheroines, a documentary tracing the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman and other superheroines. From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today, Wonder Women! introduces audiences to a dynamic group of superheroines fighting for positive role models for girls and women, both on screen and off. Wonder Women! goes behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and real-life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill/Le Tigre) and others, who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre.
Join us straight after the film for a fun discussion with some Australian wonder women: DC Comic artist Nicola Scott, Sydney Roller Derby star Feisty Cuffs, manga artist extraordinaire Queenie Chan and sensationally cool astrologist Mystic Medusa will be chatting with filmmaker and journalist Daz Chandler.
Ticket holders also go into the prize draw for an original Butcher Billy Post Punk Super Friends Wonder Woman T-shirt!
