Female film programmers in Boston joined forces to curate this rousing series of films about incredible women. Featuring a constellation of real and fictional heroines from Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Moana, the Heroic! series screens at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, throughout the month of August, including a free outdoor screening of Hayao Miyazaki’s psychedelic sci-fi Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984) on the Museum’s Huntington Avenue lawn.

We’ve joined forces with the historic Brattle Theatre in Harvard Square, which is also presenting films featuring heroic women this summer! See their full program. Bring your ticket stub from any screening in our Heroic! Series to the Brattle for a $3 discount, depending on availability.
