Girls, Blume, Mulatu Astatke
Friday, April 11, 2008
Studio 360 samples girl culture. Student filmmakers weigh in on the women they see on screen and the “American Girl” empire embraces a period of ancient history: The 1970s. A translator in Istanbul brings Judy Blume to young Turkish readers, and a special dress becomes a powerful talisman for a young storyteller. Plus, a tattoo parlor pops up at a fancy art fair and we follow Ethiopia’s musical ambassador from Addis Ababa to Boston.
