STILL WORKING 9 TO 5
Monday, August 1 at 7:30pm | Isis Theatre (406 E. Hopkins Ave, Aspen CO)
STILL WORKING 9 TO 5 – directed by Camille Hardman + Gary Lane
“…a sparky oral history and a tribute to the power of pop culture to spotlight tough problems” – The Hollywood Reporter
When the highest-grossing comedy, 9 TO 5, starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton and Dabney Coleman exploded on the cinema screens in 1980, the laughs hid a serious message about women in the office. STILL WORKING 9 TO 5 explores why workplace inequality 40 years later was never a laughing matter and examines the 40-year evolution of gender inequality and discrimination in the workplace since the 1980 release of the classic, seminal comedy.
Filmmakers Camille Hardman and Gary Lane and Executive Producer Larry Lane will participate in a post-screening panel and audience Q&A moderated by Breeze Richardson of Aspen Public Radio.
