Description

Our second female auteur filmmaker is Lois Weber, who lays claim to many film firsts like showing the first full frontal nudity on screen in 1915’s Hypocrites, being the first woman to own and control her own film studio, directing the first Tarzan movie and being the first director to cross swords with the censors (in 1914). What do Men Want (1921) examines the chasm between what men and women expect in their relationships. The heroine must struggle in her marriage because her husband fears that marital life is a prison and the film reflects Weber’s attitudes in the way that much of her oeuvre did.

Our excellent hosts at The Preservery will be on hand to take your order for food and drink during the movie.
