Film Club presents “By Invitation Only”
Film Club aims to have a film each month from the Madelyn Osur Film Library on the screen at Rocky Mountain Women’s Film office inside the Lincoln School. These screenings are free and open to the public with a small suggested donation of $5 at the door.
Rocky Mountain Women’s Film presents BY INVITATION ONLY. New Orleans filmmaker Rebecca Snedeker explores the insular world of the elite, white Carnival societies and debutante balls of Mardi Gras. Questioning their racial exclusivity, she takes an unprecedented insider’s look at the pageantry and asks: what does it mean to be the queen of the masked men? As she examines her own place in an alluring tradition, Snedeker challenges viewers to reflect on the roles we all play in our lives. Ideal for courses in gender studies, sociology, anthropology, american studies, multicultural studies, southern history and psychology.
