RadioWest and Utah Film Center have partnered to present the best in documentary filmmaking. We talk with established and new directors who are changing the way audiences see the world and then screen their films.
Monday, Doug is joined by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, director of the film "Miss Representation." This is the latest in our Through the Lens film series. Siebel Newsom's documentary explores how women are portrayed in the media and the very real consequences this has on leadership in our society. Siebel Newsom says her film is meant to be what she calls a "change agent for our culture." It's a change she says will empower women and help America's productivity, creativity and bottom line.
- Thursday, September 22, RadioWest and the Utah Film Center will host a free screening of "Miss Representation" at Utah Museum of Fine Arts in Salt Lake City and at the Pleasant Valley Library in Ogden. The film begins at 7:00 p.m. at both locations. Jennifer Siebel Newsom will be on hand in Salt Lake City for a Q&A immediately following – and the conversation will be transmitted via Skype to Ogden.
