Dreamworlds 3: Desire, Sex, & Power in Music Videos
Dreamworlds 3takes a clarifying look at the warped world of music video. Ranging across hundreds of images and stories from scores of music videos, the film uncovers a dangerous industry preoccupation with reactionary ideals of femininity and masculinity, and shows how these ideals have glamorized a deeply sexist worldview in the face of the women’s movement and the fight for women’s rights. In the end, Dreamworlds 3 challenges young people to think seriously about how forms of entertainment that might seem innocuous and inconsequential can be implicated in serious real-world problems like gender violence, misogyny, homophobia, and racism. The movie will begin at 6:30pm in Stratton 304 and a discussion will follow!
