The event creator says
SHRIEK: A Women of Horror Film & Discussion Class is a community education series that examines the roles of women in horror films. This time, discussion leader and film buff Evan J. Peterson will lead the group in a viewing and discussion of A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour!

Gorgeously photographed, this Persian vampire film explores issues of class, addiction, and gender in a culture both similar and very different from our own. It's light on fright and gore, so more sensitive viewers may wish to attend this showing.
Note: The dialogue is in Persian with English subtitles.

The goal of this community series is to offer low-cost opportunities to learn about film and gender studies and to inspire more women to get involved as creators in the genre. Scarecrow Video sponsors the class in their screening room. This is an event for community members 17 and up. Scarecrow Video is wheelchair accessible.
**We suggest bringing an extra seat cushion for the classroom chairs.**
