Team Picturehouse

20 Sep 22

We're delighted to be opening the doors to the Members' Bar at Finsbury Park Picturehouse as we welcome critic, journalist and host Hanna Flint for a special event celebrating the launch of her book 'Strong Female Character'!

Hanna will be joined in conversation by fellow critics Amon Warmann and Clarisse Loughrey for a discussion of the book and the world of film that encouraged her writing, along with plenty of time for questions from the audience. Plus, you'll get the chance to get a signed copy of Strong Female Character, and explore our exclusive Members' Bar!

Join us from 19.00 on Thursday 29 September at Finsbury Park Picturehouse — no tickets or reservation needed, but seats are limited and first come, first serve. 

About The Book

Hanna Flint speaks from the heart in Strong Female Character, a personal and incisive reflection on how cinema has been the key to understanding herself and the world we live in.

A staunch feminist of mixed-race heritage, Hanna has succeeded in an industry not designed for people like her.

Interweaving anecdotes from familial and personal experiences — episodes of messy sex, introspection, and that time actor Vincent D'Onofrio tweeted that Hanna Flint sounded 'like a secret agent' — she offers a critical eye on the screen's representation of women and ethnic minorities, their impact on her life, body image and ambitions, with the humour and eloquence that has made her a leading film critic of her generation.

Warm, funny and engaging and full of film-infused lessons, Strong Female Character will appeal to readers of all backgrounds and seeks to help us better see ourselves in our own eyes rather than letting others decide who and what we can be.
