Maya Montanez Smukler, manager of the UCLA Film & Television Research and Study Center, authored 2018’s Liberating Hollywood: Women Directors and the Feminist Reform of 1970s American Cinema, which sheds vital light on the oft-overlooked women writers and directors who were part of the 1970s New Hollywood movement. UCLA Film & Television Archive film programmer K. J. Relth recently presented a series highlighting some of their films. Relth and Montanez Smukler will be on hand to introduce the 7 p.m. shows on Friday and Saturday and the 3 p.m. show on Sunday. Montanez Smukler will be available for book signings before the film as well. Promotional support is provided by Moon Palace Books, which will have copies of Liberating Hollywood for sale in the lobby.
