About

Cinematriarchy is a Zine and a Philosophy curated by Sarah Greenleaf.

Her work focuses on women as creators, artists, and visionaries.


Sarah has personally selected three films that we will be showing on the big screen. Zines about the filmmakers in this series are also available - at a special price! After each showing, Sarah will be leading an online discussion about the corresponding film and Zine.


- Getting in the Mindset -

Before diving into the film series, let's talk about "How To Watch A Movie".

With your ticket purchase you will receive a FREE pre-series Zine and workshop with Sarah discussing our favorite thing - watching movies! 


"Learn about the women who came before you. Build the world you want."

The Films

Cultures and families clash in Mira Nair’s exuberant Monsoon Wedding, a mix of comedy and chaotic melodrama concerning the preparations for the arranged marriage of a modern upper-middle-class Indian family’s only daughter. Nair’s celebration is joyful and cathartic: a love song to her home city of Delhi and her own Punjabi family. Nair is an accomplished Film Director/Writer/Producer born in India and educated at Delhi University and at Harvard. She began her film career as an actor and then turned to directing award-winning documentaries, including So Far From India and India Cabaret.
