Don’t miss the Q&A…
After you register for this screening, be sure to register for the follow-up event, Members-Only Q&A: Misbehaviour, featuring a conversation with director Philippa Lowthorpe, former Miss World Jennifer Hosten and actors Keira Knightley and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. (Tuesday, September 29 – 11:00 am PT)
Members, you and a guest are invited to watch Misbehaviour in the Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room.
In 1970, the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by American comedy legend Bob Hope. At the time, Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet, with over 100 million viewers. Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition. Not only that; when the show resumed, the result caused an uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favorite, but Miss Grenada – the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head.
