In Nina Menke’s meticulous documentary Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power, she puts into focus the history of cinema from 1896 – 2020, with a critical lens on the male gaze in film. Carefully deconstructing images, frame by frame, we learn about how women are represented on screen to beguile audiences. This all-female led panel will analyse our engagement with all-too-familiar sexualised portrayals of women and the progress of the #MeToo era in an attempt to challenge our perceptions and champion a revolutionised approach towards filmmaking.
PANELLISTS: Nina Menkes, Sandra de Castro Buffington, Jabu Nadia Newman, Khanyi Mbau
