How To Consciously Consume Diverse Films

Filled out!I'm interesting in knowing how subjective the results may be, eg. would it count if two minor / supporting characters who are women have conversations that is not related to men? Would it count if the conversation is two-line versus a whole scene?

Thank you for filling out the survey and for your suggestions! It would count if two supporting characters that are womxn have a conversation about something other than men, but if the characters are more minor than a supporting role there is more gray area. The Bechdel test focuses on showcasing movies that have at least a scene where this happens. Ideally the test helps to identify movies which have a theme centered around womxn, but not needing their lives and conversations to be centered around men. Glad you are pointing out opportunity areas.

Ooh this is interesting! I've never heard of the Duvernay test before. Pretty cool!
