Highlighted feature films:
Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth
Film Length – 84 minutes
This film tells the compelling story of an extraordinary woman’s journey from her birth in a paper-thin shack in the cotton fields of Georgia to her recognition as a key writer of the twentieth Century. Alice Walker made history as the first black woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for her groundbreaking novel, “The Color Purple” — a universal story of triumph against all odds that is not all that different from Walker’s own.
Don’t Tell Anyone
Film Length – 75 minutes
In a community where silence is often seen as necessary for survival, undocumented activist Angy Rivera steps out of the shadows to share her parallel journey of being an undocumented immigrant and a victim of sexual assault.
