People are people because we tell stories and believe them. Those stories are populated by archetypes: original human models, as it were. Films and series are full of them. What happens if you look at these factory settings from a gender perspective? What then remains of your favourite characters, like James Bond and Lady Macbeth?
In this series four leading film professors and journalists explore the gendered nature of the following archetypes: the villain, the white masculine man, the femme fatale, the buddy and the innocent/guilty child. In doing so, they draw on an exciting mix of film theory, analysis and history, and of course a wide variety of unforgettable excerpts from the history of world cinema.
