Bette Gordon’s films have reached cult status, and with a reissue of her 1983 film Variety, she has been the subject of recent retrospectives around the country. As writer Evangeline Morphos noted, “Bette’s work explores themes of sexuality, power, and fragility. Because of the boldness of her subject matter—pornography, obsession, violence— her work is often shocking, but always truthful. We can never look away” (Bomb Magazine, April 2010).

The series is co-sponsored by the Department of Communication and Culture, with special thanks to Professor Joan Hawkins.
