March is women’s history month! Join writer and researcher Phil Anderson and veteran filmmaker Kathleen Laughlin to take a closer look at the ways that women have used animation to represent their stories. From the 1970s on, women in animation have gone beyond comic-character stereotypes while exploring their worlds, their stories, and the medium itself.
Phil Anderson has always combined teaching and writing; he taught liberal arts media-study classes at MCAD and wrote regular film reviews for City Pages. Now retired, his interests include the ongoing evolution of animation, film, and whatever “TV” might become. as well as local history (bakeries in particular).
Kathleen Laughlin has a background in graphic design, but her true passion is filmmaking. She has made both animated and live action films, and is now best known for her documentary work.  Laughlin has also worked as a producer, editor and taught other young filmmakers at MCAD.
