DOUBLE DARE: Film Screening & Q&A w/ Amanda Micheli
Stuntwomen Jeannie Epper and Zoe Bell are experts at taking punches, swinging swords, and being blown to bits. Epper first gained respect as Lynda Carter’s stuntwoman on TV’s “Wonder Woman,” while Bell had a long run as Lucy Lawless’ double on the series “Xena: Warrior Princess.” But, in a primarily male profession, the women still have to struggle against sexism to find jobs. This documentary chronicles their uphill battle in Hollywood and their enduring friendship throughout it all.
