Women’s History Month Film Festival – March 10-27

March 10-27

Women’s History Month Film Festival

RSVP, Limited Seating.

Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987.

Arthouse Cinema at LBCAC welcomes you to join in the celebration with a film series shining a bright light on remarkable women. Each film will include an introduction and a short discussion follow screening.

Wednesday, March 20, 6:30 p.m.

The Disappearance of Shere Hite

No discussion of women’s history is complete without a look at women’s sexual liberation and Shere Hite was a major influence in the modern movement. Her 1976 bestselling book, The Hite Report, revealed the most private sexual experiences of thousands of anonymous women and elevated the orgasm to new heights. Her findings rocked the American establishment and presaged current conversations about gender, sexuality and bodily autonomy. But then, instead of becoming a major voice for the feminist movement, she seemed to disappear. This unusual documentary attempts to explain what happened to Shere Hite and why.

The film will be introduced by fiction writer and blogger, Randy Kraft. A brief discussion will follow the screening.

The Disappearance of Shere Hite | March 20, 6:30 p.m.

Maya – And Still I Rise | March 23, 3 p.m.

She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry | March 27, 6:30 p.m.

“Maya – And Still I Rise” – March 24

Sunday, March 24, 3 p.m.

Maya – And Still I Rise

Maya Angelou, a major influence in the writings and theater of Black America, was more than a poet, she was an actor, singer and dancer, an activist and ultimately an icon. She was the first black poet to read at an inauguration (in 1993), and her sultry voice from then on became instantly recognizable. In this documentary, directors Bob Hercules and Rita Coburn Whack portray her impact by weaving her words with intimate archival photographs and videos. A celebration of an extraordinary talent unforgettably embedded into the 20th century’s most defining moments.

*The film will be introduced by reformed lawyer turned mediator, best-selling author, speaker, documentary assistant producer, Michelle Reinglass followed by a brief discussion.

Wednesday, March 27, 6:30 p.m.

She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry

This powerful documentary resurrects the early history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966-1971. In the voices and footage of the women who lived it, the film provides a provocative, rousing and sometimes humorous account of the many breakthrough moments serving as the foundation for the 20th century liberation movement. If you were there, you’ll delight in the memory, and if you weren’t, there are important lessons to be learned.

*The film will be followed by a brief discussion.

His latest work, ROSE AVENUE, San Diego Music Awards Best Country/Americana Album Nominee, is a 10-song masterpiece that gracefully defines Rafael’s contribution to the American canon.
