New LJ community

12films_poc is a spinoff from 50books_poc. The community challenges you to watch and review 12 films written and/or directed by people of color.

This will be easy for me because I watch so many Japanese, Chinese, and Hong Kong movies already.

Comparisons are not the point, but the OH and I were talking about this community and he pointed out it would be (more of) a challenge for us to watch 12 films written and/or directed by women. Then we thought about watching 12 films that pass the Bechdel Rule.*

The Bechdel Rule states that a movie
1. It has to have at least two women in it,
2. Who talk to each other,
3. About something other than a man.
Here is the Dykes to Watch Out For strip in which it appeared.
