IU Cinema, 1213 E. Seventh St. 47405
https://www.facebook.com/events/429984007540622/

Poet, activist, and journalist Sandra Hochman and an all-female crew documented and participated in the radical interventions of the Women’s Movement at the 1972 Democratic National Convention. These activists and filmmakers challenged media anchors, including Walter Cronkite, on the limited coverage of African-American Democratic Presidential candidate Shirley Chisholm. This rarely screened, recently restored film is a celebration of female filmmaking and feminist political action and includes appearances by Gloria Steinem, Liz Renay, Betty Friedan, Flo Kennedy, Coretta Scott King, Shirley MacLaine, and many others.

A post-screening discussion organized by Monroe County NOW will follow the film. Panelists include IU professor of political science Jean C. Robinson and Rudy Professor of sociology Pamela B. Walters.

This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.

This program is sponsored by IU Libraries Moving Image Archive, Lilly Library, the National Organization of Women, and IU Cinema.

Concert programs will feature some of the most brilliant young new-music-specialist artists currently concertizing around the United States: the Chartreuse String Trio, Altered Sound Saxophone and Percussion Duo, clarinetist Andrea Vos-Rochefort, soprano Amy Petrongelli, and pianist Clare Longendyke. Composer-in-Residence Kerrith Livengood’s works will be featured on every concert, and she, along with the rest of the Music in Bloom team, will be involved in pre-concert talks and other interactive events over the course of the three-day festival.
