Boston Calling 2018 announces Boston Calling Film Festival Curated by Natalie Portman May 22nd – May 24th at the Brattle Theatre
“I’m so excited to show films that I love that explore the female gaze,” says Natalie Portman. “I don’t think there is anything inherently different between male and female artists, but these are examples of great works of art in which similar storylines have female tropes that play out quite differently depending on who is telling the story. I’m looking forward to sharing these with an audience and hearing their reactions. It makes it an even more special opportunity to watch these incredible films on the big screen at one of my favorite movie theaters.”
