"A haunting forensic montage of deceased female bodies from film and television, combined with compelling commentary from actor Danyi Deats (who played a naked corpse in the '80s cult movie River's Edge), reveals our cultural obsession with images of murdered women as entertainment. It's a postmortem pageant that lays a Hollywood cliché bare, but regrettably not to rest. "
- Angie Driscoll, Hot Docs

Why did the beautiful young woman have to die so cruelly? Hollywood never tires of playing out the same scenario. This found footage film collects the film industry's repeat offenses by compiling endless half-naked and contorted female bodies, arranged for the male viewer who is usually present in the reverse angle shot: men staring at female corpses. An actress's off-screen report about her own experience and the excess of images reveal the sexual obsessions behind them.  - Lars Meyer,  Dok Leipzig
WHAT HAPPENED TO HER, was directed by award winning filmmaker Kristy Guevara-Flanagan, whose first feature film WONDER WOMEN! THE UNTOLD STORY OF AMERICAN SUPERHEROINES is widely used in educational institutions, premiered at SXSW, and was broadcast on the PBS series Independent Lens. Her new film is also essential viewing for Pop Culture, Women's and Cinema Studies classes.
