September Prof and A Pint

Many people are familiar with the work of D.W. Griffith and Cecil B. DeMille, the so-called “fathers” of American cinema. But what about Lois Weber, Alice Guy Blaché and June Mathis, women once prominent in early Hollywood but now largely forgotten? Shelley Stamp, Professor of Film + Digital Media, will chart the extraordinary role that women played in the first decades of moviemaking – directing and producing films, writing screenplays, shaping fan culture and early film criticism, running theaters and showing films in their classrooms, libraries, and community centers.
