presents: Two documentaries on Feminist Activists Advancing Global Movements for Ecological, Gender and Social Justice!
FEED THE GREEN: FEMINIST VOICES FOR THE EARTH challenges the cultural imagination surrounding the destruction of the environment and its impact on femicide and genocide. This informative documentary, by Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies professor and scholar Jane Caputi, highlights an active global resistance movement and an alternative imagery communicating resistant green consciousness.
PASSIONATE POLITICS is a documentary that brings Charlotte Bunch’s story to life, from idealistic young civil rights activist to lesbian separatist to internationally-recognized leader of a campaign to put women’s rights on the global human rights agenda. Interweaving past and present interviews with rich archival material, this is at once a deeply emotional portrait of a lifelong activist and an inspirational chronicle of the building of a global movement.
