DAYDREAMER’S NOTEBOOK – Camellia Feminist Fest 2015

Tatsuya Goto

May 29th, 2015


Today, the Bijou Metro will host the Camellia Feminist Fest, in conjunction with The Barn Light and Cozmic. The Barn Light will host music events throughout the day, while Cozmic will host panel discussions on various feminist subjects.

As part of the festival, the Bijou Metro will screen three films, each followed by discussions on the feminist themes in each feature:

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya by Isao Takahata (review), one of the filmmakers behind the success of the fabled animation studio Studio Ghibli. The screening starts at 11 a.m., followed by a discussion at 1:20 p.m.

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night by Ana Lily Amirpour, one of the most celebrated independent films of 2014. The screening will begin at 2:35 p.m., followed by a discussion at 4:25 p.m.

We Are the Best! by Lukas Moodysson, a Swedish movie set in 1983, about a group of adolescent girls who struggle to find their place in the world through their love of punk music. The screening will begin at 5:40 p.m.

Seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so local film fans who care about gender equality might want to rise early — even if that means heading downtown before your morning tea.
