Women Behind the Lens: Battle of the Sexes
As the women’s top-ranked tennis player, Billie Jean King, and ex-men’s champion and serial hustler Bobby Riggs prepared to play in their made-for-TV extravaganza in 1973, each fought more personal and complex battles. Directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton. The post-screening discussion is led by psychoanalyst Mari Hayes and film critic Lonita Cook.
Presented in partnership with the Greater Kansas City and Topeka Psychoanalytic Center.
