The New York Woman June 29-July 19 at the Quad

The Quad explores the female experience in New York City with a 50+ film survey spanning nearly a century of cinema. Featuring working girls, shopgirls, party girls, and more navigating the opportunities, challenges, and perils of life in the Big Apple

Highlights range from favorites like Baby Face, Crossing Delancey, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and Funny Girl to rediscoveries such as Old Enough, I Like It Like That, Survival in New York, Working Girls, Claudine, and more

Co-starring with leading ladies down through the years, the ever-versatile New York City has played itself onscreen as everything from a nurturing parent to a fickle mate to a bohemian relative. Gotham has long been both a hot spot of creative ferment and an imagination-capturing setting; the bustling masses, fizzy nightlife, mean streets, and self-mythologizing chutzpah were exported by Hollywood to occupy the global consciousness. The female protagonist's experience of the Big Apple, with its seemingly endless possibilities, has been brought to the screen as screwball comedy, musical, coming-of-age drama, horror movie, thriller, and much more besides. With our biggest (over 50 titles!) retrospective yet, we’re spanning nearly a century of cinema history and all five boroughs to gather together these diverse female-driven stories of ambition, romance, rebellion, and risk, portraits of shopgirls, party girls, working girls, unmarried women, society dames, mad housewives, and ladies about town trying to make it big, or just get by, in a city of glass towers and glass ceilings.
