This week's episode of Graphic Policy Radio comes at a special time as we welcome special guest Kristy Guevara-Flanagan to talk about Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines.
The documentary traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today, Wonder Women! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society’s anxieties about women’s liberation.
Kristy’s first feature-length film was an acclaimed documentary covering four years in the lives of four adolescent girls. Going on 13 was an official selection of Tribeca, Silverdocs, and many other international film festivals. It received funding from ITVS and was broadcast on public television in 2009. Kristy has also produced and directed several short films, including El Corrido De Cecilia Rios, a chronicle of the violent death of 15-year-old Cecilia Rios. It was an official selection of the Sundance Film Festival. Now an assistant professor at Diablo Valley College, Kristy has a MFA in Film Production from San Francisco State University.
The documentary recently had its television broadcast premiere in the United States on PBS's Independet Lens series.
Through June 14, 2013, you can see the complete film streaming on the PBS website.
We took some time off, but Graphic Policy Radio is back this Monday for the latest episode of comics and politics geekiness. We've got a lot to catch up on but some of the topics we're discussing are:
It's cool to kill kids again in comics. We discuss the death of the latest Robin and other kids being offed. Is Mutant a four (ok six) letter word? We talk about Uncanny Avengers and Havok's declaration. There was rumors about the death of Green Lantern John Stewart, but those plans were publicly denied. We talk killing off the beloved character. Our favorite recent reads and recommendations for comic fans! Tune in and call in to discuss!
Larry Greenfield, Senior fellow of the American Freedom Alliance and fellow at the Claremont Institute has a lot to say about President Obama's visit to Israel, the Middle East going forward, and US foreign policy. Be sure to tune in!
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately? There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective. Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting. But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree! If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
It's a new Monday so a new episode of Graphic Policy Radio covering the latest comic book news and reviews! This week is a WTF moment as we discuss DC's WTF Month. But, the bigger is the reliance on promotions on "gimmicks" instead of other things, like good writing, to sell comics. Death of characters, chromium covers, it's all on the table as we chat. Also, the latest Facebook comic fan demographic report is out! We chat who the fans are and changes. On top of that, the
