Feminist Filmmaking: Celebrating 50 Years
June 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$12
Independent filmmaker and feminist cultural advocate, Ariel Dougherty, a Truth or Consequences resident, is celebrating a cultural milestone throughout 2022. For this showcase at CCA, she will show films from the early days of Women Make Movies, Inc., the organization she co-founded in 1972. She will also present a contemporary short from a girl-centered film teaching program. Fifty years ago there were few films that centered on women protagonists. On one hand, then, you could count the women directors in Hollywood. Today, the organization she celebrates is the globe’s largest distributor of women-directed films, with a collection of over 700 works from around the world.
