femme film fridays with the bullock museum


Join #bossbabesATX for The Bullock Museum's new program Femme Film Fridays, a film series highlighting the cinematic works of women, both behind and in front of the camera, as part of our festival programming BABES FEST. For the fifth event in this program on Friday May 5, 2017, come out for a screening of Middle of Nowhere. Included with your ticket is a 6:00 p.m. welcoming reception with a cash bar,  the public premiere of B. B. Araya's short film, Beta, from 7:05 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. (filmmaker will be in attendance) and a Q&A following the screening, featuring Dr. Lisa B. Thompson, playwright and Associate Professor of African & African Diaspora Studies at UT Austin and Fatima Mann, Director and co-founder of Counter Balance: ATX.

About Middle of Nowhere: When her husband is sentenced to eight years in prison, Ruby drops out of medical school in order to focus on her husband's well-being while he's incarcerated. She struggles to find the courage to remain faithful and supportive as the demands of being a prison wife weigh heavily on her shoulders, leading her on a journey of self-discovery in the process.

About Femme Film Fridays: Femme Film Fridays is produced by The Bullock Museum, in partnership with Humanities Institute at The University of Texas at Austin  and #bossbabesATX. This series is part of #bossbabesATX's film initiatives with their festival BABES FEST. Media sponsorship for Femme Film Fridays is provided by Austin Woman Magazine.
