Drunk Feminist Films: First Wives Club

  • Hot Docs Cinema 506 Bloor Street West Toronto, ON, M5S 1Y3 Canada (map)

“Have you ever been dumped for your ex's secretary, therapist, and/or Jessie Spano from Saved By The Bell? Join Drunk Feminist Films for FIRST WIVES CLUB, as we revisit mid-'90s feminism through the lens of upper-class straight white women. Hosts Sandra Battaglini and Aisha Brown are here to tackle the tough questions:
-Can we critique patriarchal ageism without shaming women for getting plastic surgery?
-Which day is preferable for lesbians to come out to their shitty dads: Fathers Day or Christmas morning?
-How do you remove wine stains from an all-white pantsuit?

The cinema has wheelchair-accessible seats, and there is also an accessible washroom. Ticket-holders requiring an accessible seat may email [email protected], and we will ensure cinema staff direct your party to your seat upon arrival.

About DFF:
At Drunk Feminist Films, we would rather laugh than cry our way through patriarchy in pop culture. Join our hilarious hosts for #hottakes and a play-along, shout-along movie going experience complete with a feminist drinking game that breaks down everything we love, loathe and find problematic in Hollywood movies.”
