"Hey Baby, Smile For Me!" (15)

London Short Film Festival

In the wake of a tumultuous 2018, the #MeToo movement has at long last supplanted sexism into almost every public consciousness. Looking to the uneasy reality of how this shapes the very foundations of a woman’s day-to-day, T A P E present a programme turning focus to street harassment.

From the witty and subversive, to films of a more uncomfortable nature, we examine women’s vulnerability within public spaces, the body politics of occupying space, the male gaze as an exertion of power, why catcalling still happens and if there’s more we can be doing.

Films include work by Muriel D'Ansembourg, Connie Chavez, Kate Hardie, Kate Dolan, Kate Jessop, Connie Van, Jemima Read, Nathan Byron, as well as Buzzfeed virals.

Following the screening, a panel will discuss their own impressions and experiences, including Molly Ackhurst and Kelsey Mohamed of Hollaback, actress Tanya Fear (Catcalling 2.0) and T A P E’s Angie Moneke.
