Reeltime: Wonder Women!


Kristy Guevara-Flanagan's "Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroine" traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman.

From the birth of the comic book super heroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today, "Wonder Women!" looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society's anxieties about women's liberation.

"Wonder Women!" goes behind the scenes with actors Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman) and Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman), comic writers and artists, and real-life super heroines such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna and others, who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre.

Co-presented with ITVS Community Cinema, Independent Lens and WTTW. The Reeltime film and discussion series is a program of Percolator Films, Evanston's non-profit film arts organization. Percolator Films presents this film as part of the Reeltime series.
