THE UNTOLD STORY OF
AMERICAN SUPERHEROINES

by Kristy Guevara-Flanagan

Trace the fascinating evolution and legacy of the original comic book Amazon, Wonder Woman. From her creation in the 1940s to the superhero blockbusters of today, pop culture’s representations of powerful women often reflect society’s anxieties about women’s liberation.

The Independent Television Service (ITVS), PBS SoCal (KOCE-TV) and Soka University of America are pleased to announce the fourth year of the Community Cinema series, which began in September 2012. The largest public interest outreach program in public or commercial television, Community Cinema features a sneak peek of eight documentaries set to broadcast on the award-winning PBS series Independent Lens. Community Cinema, in partnership with Soka University’s Humanities Program and Student Affairs, screens films monthly from September through May.

After the screenings, Community Cinema features panel discussions with community-based organizations, special guest speakers, information, resources, and other programming designed to help our students and community learn more about the issues and get involved. Faculty members are encouraged to incorporate these films in their class curricula.
