Remembering Thelma and Louise: Jennifer Townsend Documentary

The movie Thelma and Louise elicited visceral reactions from filmgoers when it appeared on the scene in 1991. Many viewers shared their reactions in a national survey. Now, almost 30 years later, a new award-winning documentary, Catching Sight of Thelma and Louise, illuminates the classic journey of its namesake through film clips and intimate stories by those same viewers who shared their original reactions and present-day views of the significance this cultural touchstone holds for them. Catching Sight is a film about how women experience the world. Women and men share their truth about the way women are treated by society. They pose the question: Has anything changed? Join us as we attempt to answer this and other questions about the roles of women and men in our culture today.
