Presented with Porsche Cars Australia
To celebrate the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition Goddess: Power, Glamour, Rebellion, we’ve curated a selection of films where women take the wheel, seize control and carve out their own paths.
The driver’s seat has long been a visual short-hand in cinema for power, agency, and control, however, for decades it was strangely rare to see a woman behind the wheel. Join us as we celebrate films that flip that gender bias, pump the gas and put the pedal to the metal.
Porsche Cars Australia is proud to be Lead Exhibition Partner of Goddess: Power, Glamour, Rebellion.
