Terry’s Picks: May 21

Illusion short film trailer from Jessica Hester.

Pleased to see: that public pressure forced Disney to back down on its glam, sexy makeover of Brave’s Princess Merida. This over-sexualization of girl and woman characters in children’s media has a negative effect on both girls and boys.

Giving a shout out to: Jessica Hester and her award-winning short film, Illusion. Recently featured in an article by Laura Sheldon on GalTime.comIllusion can be seen on opening night of VisionFest, June 26, 8 pm, at Tribeca Cinemas.

Looking forward to: the opening night of Another Experiment by Women Film Festival. Filmmaker Coleen Fitzgibbon will present the world premiere of her new experimental videos on Monday, May 27 at the Anthology Film Archives at 7 pm.
