The Projection Project at Flatpack Film Festival 2017 - 'Is That A Woman In The Box?' on Apr 9
From the ‘projectionettes’ of the two world wars right up to the present day, this audio-visual talk by Dr Rebecca Harrison (University of Glasgow) and Dr Richard Wallace (University of Warwick) will reveal the hidden history of the women who have worked in this typically masculine space.
When we think of cinema projectionists our mind might conjure up images of Buster Keaton wrapped in celluloid, or Alfredo chopping out kisses in Cinema Paradiso. Very rarely do we imagine that the person working away in the box behind us might be a woman, and yet there have been female projectionists throughout the history of British cinema.
On Sunday April 9th, The Projection Project will present this talk as part of Flatpack Film Festival 2017. Taking place in the Flatpack Hub (97 Smallbrook Queensway, + Google Map ) from 2.00pm to 3.30pm.
