PechaKucha Presentation

"Carrie Fisher was 18 when she starred in Star Wars. She owns that film. She commands all the other characters. [She's] a female character that doesn't have to become masculine to be in charge"

In Heroes and Heroines from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 3 Jon Torrens passionately shares about the heroes and heroines from the big screen (and some from the small screen) that have inspired him over the years, highlighting their strengths but not over looking their flaws. The last hero he features is his greatest, adding a sweet twist to a solid line-up of true greats. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" On Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015.
