Description: With Special Tour Guide Amy Schindler, UNO Library Queer Omaha Archives

Join us for a special tour of Cassils: Phantom Revenant lead by Amy Schindler of the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Queer Omaha Archives. Schindler will expand on topics reflected in the exhibition, offering context around archiving queerness in Nebraska.

A screening of Pumping Iron II: The Women will follow the tour. This 1985 documentary focuses on four women bodybuilders as they prepare for and compete in the 1983 Caesars World Cup. The film addresses the slipperiness of judging women who have devoted their lives to the pursuit of their conception of the "perfect" female form.
