Battle of the Sexes (12A)

Subtitled Screening: 23 January

Running Time: 121 minutes
Cast: Emma Stone, Steve Carrell, Elisabeth Shue, Andrea Riseborough

In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s world champion Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men’s-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world.

As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. The fiercely private King was not only championing for equality, but also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, as her friendship with Marilyn Barnett (Andrea Riseborough) developed. And Riggs, one of the first self-made media-age celebrities, wrestled with his gambling demons, at the expense of his family and wife Priscilla (Elisabeth Shue).

Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.

Voodoo. Media is manipulation.
Why Voodoo?

The word conjures up a lot of different images in people’s minds. But for us it means the controlling of others using an external force. And in the 21st Century that external force is the media. Newspapers, TV, magazines, social media, radio, blogs, vlogs and even those little stickers people randomly put on bus shelters. They tell us what clothes to wear, what size we should be, what to do with our hair, what car to drive and even who we should and should not be afraid of.

In the words of Alice Cooper:
“Your world full of creeps
Zombies walk the street
9 to 5 barely alive
Have a beer go to sleep
And start all over again”

The worst part is we believe we’re doing it all out of choice. But if this were true why are we becoming increasingly unhappy? Our mental health is deteriorating. Depression, eating disorders and suicide rates are on the rise. In fact, latest figures show that female suicide rates in the UK are at their highest for a decade. Voodoo is our little way of saying ‘NO!’ to this mass media and ‘YES!’ to friendship, love, fun and support.

Top name acts from around the world will be performing to say no to this negativity and fight against the media stereotypes. Join the revolution!
