IU Cinema Presents "Little Woods" Directed by Nia Da Costa

IU Cinema, thinks it is critical to showcase the underrepresented work of women in film.  
Of the 103 screenings left this season, 40 are F-rated (directed and/or written by a woman). 

For this reason, we are thrilled to host writer/director Nia DaCosta in Bloomington on 1/31 and 2/1 for a screening 
of her debut feature film and an extended, on-stage interview. 

The Tribeca Film Festival calls DaCosta "a name you're gonna need to get familiar with," and we couldn't agree more! Her impressive debut feature, LITTLE WOODS, won the Nora Ephron Award for ‘spirited and bold’ storytelling at Tribeca and stars Tessa Thompson​ and Lily James. The film expertly addresses a range of timely topics including the opioid crisis, sexual violence, women’s reproductive rights, poverty, and healthcare. 

DaCosta is scheduled to be present for a Q&A after our 1/31 screening of LITTLE WOODS. Tickets are $4 for IUB students and $7 for non-students and can be purchased online here, at the IU Auditorium Box Office, or in the IU Cinema lobby beginning one hour before the film.

More Info

Her Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Program will take place on 2/1 from 4 - 5:30pm and is FREE, no ticket required. ​

IU Cinema hopes to welcome an engaged audience for both of these events, and would love it if you would help us spread the word. Please feel free to use any of this information in your own outreach, and please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.  Thank you and best wishes,
