Kore Press Asks: Who Is Your She-ro?

Posted By on Thu, Oct 25, 2012 at 3:24 PM

Male heroes get a lot of play in today's media, from comic books to movies to TV. Kore Press asks, what about the super women?

This Saturday, Kore Press invites Tucson to their Fall 2012 Grrls' Literary Activism Workshop, where they plan to screen "Her Powers. And Ours.," a short film that celebrates the strength of the everyday girls and women in our world; in conjunction, there will be a screening of "Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines."

From Kore Press:

Who's Your Wonderwoman?
What's your strength or superpower?
If you could create a supergirl or super woman,
what powers would she have?

Four teen grrls and their peers in Tucson have been discussing these and other questions as they create a short film on the subject of finding your power, personal challenges, and she-roes.

Onscreen, you'll see Grrl Workshoppers Phoebe Meixner (City High School), Emily Marigold Hall (University of Arizona), Samantha Bell, and Amelia Marsh (both University High School) use discussions, interviews, and memories to explore creative visions for new superheroines. Wonder women mentors Kimi Eisele, and Piper Weinberg led the workshops and helped the grrls create their short film about the strengths and superpowers within everyday girls and women.

Kore also encourages people to send in the names of their personal She-roes, so they can be honored on the heroine list at Kore's website.

Tickets to the screenings are $8 for general admission, and $6 for Loft Cinema members. For more on the event, check things out here.
