Tonight at 10:00 p.m. Eastern, the Independent Lens program on PBS marks the television premiere of “Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines”, a great documentary by Kristy Guevara-Flanagan.
I had the chance to watch an earlier version of film at GeekGirlCon in 2011 and was really impressed with Kristy’s work. I proudly supported the Kickstarter last year to make sure the documentary got finished, and was delighted to see it earned a world premiere at SXSW.
Now, the documentary has made the leap to our television screens! With sites like MTV Geek providing coverage, hopefully many fans of Wonder Woman and other superheroines will get to see it. Don’t worry if you miss it tonight; as is usual for PBS, the program repeats a number of times over the next two weeks, so check your local listings for the channels in your area.
