Women’s Studies schedules lesbian, gay film series

Sheila McLaughlin’s film She Must Be Seeing Things will be shown at 7 p.m. March 5 in Auditorium B, Angell Hall, as part of the Lesbian and Gay Film Series sponsored by the Women’s Studies Program.

In the film, the strength of a love affair between two women, a lawyer and a filmmaker, is tested when the lawyer, after reading the filmmaker’s diary, disguises herself as a man and jealously shadows her lover. This film represents lesbian desire through an engagement of the “contradictions and complicities that have emerged subculturally, in both discourses and practices, through the feminist-lesbian debates on sex-radical imagery as a political issue of representation, as well as real life,” according to scholar Teresa de Lauretis.

Also scheduled as part of the series are:

March 19, Peter Mettler’s Tectonic Plates;

April 2, Barbara Hammer’s Nitrate Kisses;

April 9, The Salt Mines by Susana Allende and Carlos Aparicio; L Is For the Way You Look by Jean Carlomusto; It Wasn’t Love by Sadie Benning; and Storme: The Lady of the Jewel Box by Michelle Parkerson.

The free showings all begin at 7 p.m. in Auditorium B, Angell Hall. For information, call 763-2047.
