And Cinema Created Woman
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Beautiful, rebellious, romantic, intelligent, inspirational, forceful, misunderstood women who drive men mad and make them see the error of their ways, ultimately leading then to either greatness or ruin. Come and discover four internationally acclaimed films that reveal women in all their glory!
