With hands clasped and hair blowing in the wind, the image of Thelma and Louise speeding across the desert in a powder blue convertible has influenced generations of women. Thelma and Louise spoke to empowerment, strength, and freedom, and inspired a national survey created by Jennifer Townsend, the director of Catching Sight of Thelma and Louise. Over several months, she collected the thoughts and impacts of this iconic film. Now, over 25 years later, Townsend is reopening the conversation with those original survey participants. Through interviews with fans and some of the actors, including Christopher McDonald, audiences are brought into an intimate discussion of the many realities of being a woman in society. -AL
