Grand Dames of the Grindhouse: The Films of Roberta Findlay and Doris Wishman

Lisa Petrucci of Something Weird Video appears at the Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies with a lively illustrated lecture on the films of exploitation mavericks Roberta Findlay and Doris Wishman, looking at their historical contexts, their comparable trajectory from nudies and roughies to porn and horror, and seeking to reconcile their aversion to feminism with their status as pioneering women filmmakers. The Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies is an international educational community through which established horror writers, directors, scholars and curators celebrate horror history and culture with a unique blend of enthusiasm and critical perspective.
