DIETLAND Screening and Conversation
May 20 2018, Published 8:00 p.m. ET
VENUE: Buttenwieser Hall
ADDRESS: 1395 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10128, USA
Created by Marti Noxon (UnREAL, Mad Men, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and based on the bestselling novel by Sarai Walker, the darkly comic revenge fantasy follows Plum Kettle (Joy Nash), a fashion-magazine ghostwriter who struggles with self-image. At the same time, everyone is buzzing over news reports about men, accused of sexual abuse and assault, who are disappearing and meeting untimely, violent deaths. Join Nash, Noxon and co-star Julianna Margulies, who plays the magazine’s editor, for a screening of the debut episode and a conversation about this timely new show — which tackles everything from our society’s unrealistic beauty standards to how women are fighting misogyny and patriarchy today. Turn the status quo on its head with Caryn James (BBC Culture) in conversation with the ladies of Dietland.
Hosted by 92nd Street Y.
