Honors Forum Series: Screening and Discussion of Joyce Chopra’s Lady Director

March 2, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Nissan Auditorium for Honors Forum

Join the Ina E. Gordy Honors College for a film screening and discussion of women in the film industry. Library Journal says, “Award-winning film director Chopra’s memoir pulls no punches. . . She candidly describes navigating sexism and abuse in the film industry; her start as a documentarian; her groundbreaking autobiographical short Joyce at 34; winning Best Director at the Sundance Film Festival for her first feature film, Smooth Talk; and her constant battles with Hollywood producers who refused to work with a woman director.” Chopra has granted us the rights to screen her groundbreaking Joyce at 34 and will join us virtually afterward to discuss her career.
