Geek Girls
Thursday October 11, 2018  6:30pm
Movie Fundraiser / Charity Health / Wellness Wheelchair Accessible Community

Presented by Acadia Faculty Association Women's Committee

Geek Girls explores the hidden half of fan culture: nerdy women. Although geeky communities have recently risen to prominence as major cultural contributors, very little attention has been directed towards the women who live and work with nerd culture on a daily basis. In the feature doc, Geek Girls, filmmaker and certified geek Gina Hara addresses this oversight by delving into a world of professional gamers, cute dresses, fake names, and death threats; she follows her subjects through the exhilaration of newfound community and the ennui of ostracization while also exploring her own struggles with her geek identity.
This event is free and open to everyone.
Donations to Chrysalis House will be collected at the door.
