Working Girls

Sex and career. Women and men. “Working-girl films,” says series programmer Verena Mund, “tell stories about women who join the workforce and quickly find they need to deal with economics in both business and sexual terms.” This program, featuring works directed by women both inside and outside the Hollywood studio system between 1916 and 1986, follows young professional women in search of their own version of the American Dream.
