HUSTLERS + Short: NELA
March 13 @ 19:40 - 22:00
HUSTLERS d. Lorene Scafaria, 2019 + Short: NELA presented by Screen25 Cinema & Feminista Films at Harris Academy South Norwood (13 MAR 19:40):
Jennifer Lopez’s artistic output has been brilliantly diverse over the years, but Hustlers may well be her finest achievement to date. With her partners in crime including Constance Wu (CRAZY RICH ASIANS) and Julia Stiles (10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU), J.Lo plays Romana Vega, leader of a strip club whose employees begin drugging and robbing unwitting Wall Street businessmen.
Inspired by Jessica Pressler’s viral article ‘The Hustlers at Scores’, which shone a light on the real-life group’s practice, this is a uniquely empowering work that mixes female solidarity with a potent desire to get even.
NELA: A strikingly intimate study of the great classical ballerina Marianela Nuñez as she dances to Nina Simone, choreographed by Will Tuckett.
Feminista Films: Throughout the season, Screen25 will be partnering with Feminista Film Festival’s UK Tour to celebrate International Women’s Month. Each feature film will be paired with one of Feminista’s inspiring short films that celebrate women and girls from around the world.
- NELA – 7:40pm
