Some highlights include:
No Look Pass:
The coming-of-age story of Emily Tay, a first generation Burmese immigrant from Chinatown, Los Angeles, who breaks all of the rules of tradition. After living a double life at Harvard University, she strives to play professional basketball while coming out as a lesbian. Emily’s dreams are no slam dunk — family, race, and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell conspire against her, firing her passions on and off the court.
A Moment in Her Story - Stories from the Boston Women's Movement:
Starting in 1968, the Second Wave of feminism rippled across the U.S., demanding expanded possibilities for women of all races and classes. In the Boston area, students, professionals, community activists and working class mothers, from Dorchester to Cambridge came together to demand change.
Animated and Experimental Shorts
The Fruit of Our Labor: Afghan women share stories of their fight for social change. Going far beyond western media coverage of Afghanistan, these self-produced short docs provide a fresh perspective on Afghan women’s issues.
