About the film:
Womanhouse (Dir. Johanna Demetrakas, 1974), 47 minutes, NR

WOMANHOUSE is a historic documentary about one of the most important feminist cultural events of the 1970s. Judy Chicago (best-known as the creator of The Dinner Party) and Miriam Shapiro rented an old Hollywood mansion and altered its interior through decor and set-pieces to "search out and reveal the female experience...the dreams and fantasies of women as they sewed, cooked, washed and ironed away their lives." WOMANHOUSE is a fascinating historical look at feminism, its reception in the 1970s, and the ever-important relationship between art and social change.

Please note that this program contains explicit language, brief nudity, and other mature content which may not be suitable for all audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.

This film screening is part of the exhibition In the Company of Women.
