#MeToo, #TimesUp, and other movements have recently rallied women across industries. In the film industry, the treatment of women on set is often unjust. Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining (1980) has reached cult status, but the poor treatment of its lead actress, Shelley Duvall, goes unacknowledged.

University of Iowa senior and filmmaker Tristen Ives’ short film lights, camera, hair! (2018) sheds light upon the treatment of Duvall using scenes from The Shining, and scenes from Vivian Kubrick’s Making ‘The Shining’ (1980). Ives’ film was recently screened at the UI Cinematic Arts Department’s Colloquium, and will be screened at the 2019 Montreal Underground Film Festival. Ives currently serves as the Bijou Film Board’s executive director.
