Ida Lupino: Femme fatale. A top Warner Bros' star. And one of '50s Hollywood's most prolific female writer-director-producers.

She moved behind the camera to create a series of bold, challenging films on then-taboo subjects: out-of-wedlock pregnancy (Not Wanted); sexual assault survivors (Outrage); bigamy (The Bigamist), all created on micro-budgets that inspired her to develop a resourceful and economic shooting style. Eventually, she'd go on to direct episodes for some of the era's most iconic TV series, including Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Twilight Zone and Gilligan’s Island.

We celebrate this pioneering triple-threat with a career-spanning retrospective — the first of its kind in Toronto — highlightling Ida Lupino's femme fatale roles and her influential, years-ahead-of-its-time films, with special introductions by programmer Jesse Wente and MoMA The Museum of Modern Art curator Anne Mora.
