The Little Theater
Part of a Double-Feature with "Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights"
SBAI has partnered with The Little Theater and WXXI again to present our annual Women's History Month Film Series. This year our films focus on "Weaving Women's Stories," and look closely at the individual experiences of women through many lenses and genres of film. Ticket pricing will be posted soon.
She's Beautiful When She's Angry resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women's movement from 1966 to 1971. From the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women's liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of W.I.T.C.H. (Women's International Conspiracy from Hell!). Artfully combining dramatizations, performance and archival imagery, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality, and in the process created a world-wide revolution.
These stories still resonate today for women who are facing new challenges around reproductive rights and sexual violence, as the film shows present-day activists creating their generation's own version of feminism. She's Beautiful When She's Angry is a film about activists, made to inspire women and men to work for feminism and human rights.
