My Atlas

My Atlas

Summer 2014

My Atlas is a 2014 summer event series that pairs films with live travelogs to explore the varied experiences of women travelers.

Women take to the road for reasons of escape and pleasure, ambition and aimlessness, privileged choice and coercion. Feature films by male and female directors, spanning 60 years of cinema history, will focus on atypical representations of the female traveler in narrative cinema—as divorcees, drug mules, exiles, and drifters. Each film screening will be preceded by a speaker who will recount a specific travel story and/or discuss travel as a mode of self-understanding.

My Atlas is curated by Sasha Archibald, Julia Meltzer, and Courtney Stephens.
