JUMP CUT
A REVIEW OF CONTEMPORARY MEDIA

Rachel Weir

I am a recent graduate with a BA in Film Studies and History. While working on my degree, I focused on gender in film and the ways in which formal technique, along with writing, can limit female characters. I am interested in not only studying how film communicates these inequalities, but how these filmic depictions affect interpersonal relationships of viewers and, in a broader sense, general cultural ideology.
