Pin-Up: The Movie!

Logline: Dangerous. Sexy. All-American Girl. You know the look. Now meet the women who are making retro style modern.

Elevator Pitch: 
“Pin Up! The Movie” follows a group of women through their everyday lives, showing why they’re drawn to the retro style. There are two interrelated stories. In one, a group of women compete for the title of Miss 1940s White Christmas Ball. In the other, an established pin up photographer and her crew seek a fresh face for a magazine spread.

Production Team:
Director/Producer: Kathleen M. Ryan

About the Film:
People think that the pin up is just something men look at. All the women our director has talked with say they’re doing this for themselves. They love the power, beauty and sisterhood in the culture. The modern pin up is a pretty feminist creature.

Current Status: Premiering Nov. 5 at 9pm, closing film for the Woman Up Independent Film Festival.
