A Moment in Her Story:
Stories from the Boston Women's Movement
As hard-hitting as its acronym, the WAM! (Women, Action & the Media) Film Festival (this Saturday, March 24) presents films by and
about women tackling tough issues and injustices. The films include The
Fruit of Our Labor (1 pm), a trio of self-produced short docs about
Afghan women; Catherine Russo's A Moment in Her Story:
Stories from the Boston Women's Movement (2012; 7 pm), an account of local participants
in the second wave of feminism starting in 1968; and Melissa Johnson's No
Look Pass (2011; 9:30 pm), an inspiring portrait of a lesbian
Burmese immigrant who wants to play professional basketball. All three screen
at the Brattle Theatre and will be followed by Q&As with the filmmakers.
The Brattle is at 40 Brattle St,
Cambridge | $20 festival pass;
$5-$8 individual tickets | 617.876.6837 or brattlefilm.org.
