Fifty years ago, the term “sexism” was coined. In light of this historical marker, Alamo Drafthouse and TTU invite you to this film series which seeks to consider the ways in which sexism is embedded, endorsed, and/or challenged in the cinema. How far have we come? How far do we need to go? We selected films spanning the last five decades to view and discuss at Alamo Drafthouse - Lubbock.

Movies will begin at 7:00 PM with a brief introduction. The films will be followed by a 20-30 minute focused discussion in the theater led by a TTU faculty member or expert guest speaker.

This month's title: BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR (2013)

Winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival

A 15-year-old finds her naïve perceptions of human sexuality challenged upon meeting a blue-haired student who encourages her to assert her individuality in director Abdel Kechiche's deeply perceptive drama.

Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) is in the midst of a sexual awakening when a handsome male classmate strives to catch her attention. Meanwhile, Adèle's daydreams keep drifting back to Emma (Léa Seydoux), a worldly art student she ran into on the street.

Later, when Adèle and Emma forge an actual connection, the uncertain younger teen discovers a side of herself that she's never known, becoming increasingly comfortable in her own skin despite the reactions of her close-minded classmates.

BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR is a vital beautiful, challenging motion picture experience.
