I looked at him over my shoulder: 'I've got out at last,' said I, 'in spite of you.'

The Yellow Wallpaper was filmed in the historic Vachel Lindsay Home here in Springfield. The film stars local actor, Aasne Vigesaa and was directed by David Cain, local artist the discussion panelists for this event.The discussion moderator is Meagan Cass, UIS Asst. Professor in English/Creative Writing.

Aasne Vigesaa's electrifying performance as the 'Narrator' of Gilman's influential 1891 story takes you through one woman's extraordinary emotional journey through confinement that may be the result of traditional power structures, or perhaps other factors are at play.
