Women's Short Films - My So-Called Disoriented Life

National Museum of Women in the Arts

Wednesday, Oct 4th, 2006 - 6:30 PM

Balancing work, family, and school while playing the roles of daughters, girlfriends, sisters, and wives, it’s a wonder that any woman can get anything done. This selection of short films, from the humorous to the surreal, shows us that now and again every woman uses the strength of a superhero just to get by.

Total Running Time: 84 min.

$5 regular admission, $4 for over 60, students, museum members, members of WIFV.  Tickets available only at the door.  Cash only.

A Q&A with director of My Life Disoriented, Eric Byler, will follow the program.

*We'll be giving away a $50 gift certificate to Bambu Restaurant AND a gift subscription to Giant Robot at this screening!
