Film: Woman's Angle

Friday, March 20

Historically speaking, a woman's place was in front of the camera, not behind it. Female film directors are still a rare species, and there's little glory for the woman who infiltrates the boys-club politics of film studios, particularly if she transgresses chick-flick, rom-com clichés in her work. The Woman's Angle hopes to change that. The advocacy group has packaged six self-financed short films in the WOMAN'S ANGLE, a 90-minute premiere at the Plaza Theatre. The screening includes Atlanta Film Festival participant "A Peacock-Feathered Blue," Jenna Milly's story of 9-year-old Marcel, who's failing science because he's more interested in artistic endeavors. Tickets include an after-party with the directors. $10. 7:30 p.m.; repeat screening March 22, 2 p.m. 1049 Ponce de Leon Ave. 404-873-1939. www.womansangle.com.
