Attend this film fest: WAM! [Women, Action & the Media] Film Festival @ the Brattle

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.
