We are thrilled to announce the Tennessee premiere of

a woman like that 

an evening with Artemisia Gentileschi

a woman like that is:

a celebrated new feature documentary film about Artemisia Gentileschi, featuring scholars Mary Garrard, Elizabeth Cropper, Ann Sutherland Harris, Richard Spear, Elizabeth Cohen and many others.

The provocative art and heroic life of 17th Century female painter Artemisia Gentileschi inspires filmmaker Ellen Weissbrod’s own coming of middle-age struggle to be “a woman like that.”  Filmmakers Ellen Weissbrod & Melissa Powell and will introduce the screening and stay for a Q & A after the film.
