CRITICAL WOMEN HEADLINES

4/12/10

Arts Magazine Screening Room

Lily Tomlin On Call. The irreverent and unconventionally female comic phones in to the Arts Magazine with reflections on her numerous personas counting that nosy bill collector Ernestine and The Incredible Shrinking Woman; memories of Robert Altman on Nashville; the influence of her Detroit workingclass roots on her unique brand of humor; and how her characters change with the changing social issues through time.

And...
A conversation with Ethiopian born Sankofa director and Howard University Professor Haile Gerima, delving into an African filmmaker's perspective on race and class in African American cinema.
