Abstract

Thelma & Louise, directed by Ridley Scott, written by Callie Khouri and starring Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon was a box office hit on its release thirty years ago and ignited an extraordinary debate about the representation of women, violence and feminism. In this talk the panel considers the film's significance and contemporaneity in the age of #MeToo and #TimesUp.

- Professor Marita Sturken - Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University.
- Lucy Brown - Award-winning educator and practitioner. She is Head of Division for Film and an Associate Professor at London South Bank University.
- Funke Oyebanjo - Script consultant, lecturer and scriptwriter. She is one of the founding members of the Talawa theatre writers’ group.
- Dr Shelley Cobb - Associate professor of Film at the University of Southampton and Principal Investigator of Calling the Shots: Women and Contemporary Film Culture in the UK.
