DOC NYC 2012: Hispanic Documentary Picks

WONDER WOMEN! The Untold Story of American Superheroines

Expected to Attend: Director Kristy Guevara-Flanagan, Producer Kelcey Edwards present for a Q&A

Tracing the fascinating origins, evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman, this lively documentary takes you from the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today. A look behind the scenes with Lynda Carter (TV’s Wonder Woman), Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman), comic book writers and artists, and real life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna and others, this film offers an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre.

WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH THIS: It’s fun, informative, nerdy, and totally cool all at the same time.
