Ida Lupino: Hard, Fast, and Beautiful Coming to BAMPFA
January 13 - February 24
Start this new year off learning about Ida Lupino – through this selection of films, featuring Lupino’s acting, writing, production and direction.
Energetic, resourceful, and intelligent, Ida Lupino (1918-1995) left her indelible impression on cinema from both sides of the camera. Despite her success as an actor, Lupino was frustrated by the lack of interesting parts for women and the constraints of the studio system. In 1947 she left Warner Bros., and as a free agent began writing, producing, and ultimately directing films in addition to acting.
