On the second day of the Virginia Film Festival, podcaster Sean McCord talked with Brian Wimer and Billy Hunt, both directors of CLAW, a look at the Collective of Lady Arm Wrestlers. CLAW the collective started in Charlottesville five or six years ago, and has now spread to other cities and nations. With its bustiers and burqas, is CLAW the fourth wave of feminism or the latest form of burlesque? Brian and Billy discuss the short history of CLAW, their approach as filmmakers, and Brian’s turn as a gay werewolf in Faux Paws.
CLAW screens on Saturday at 9:00 PM in the Paramount. Tickets and information here:
