Overview

Overview International Women’s Day: Short Films

Victory to Change is a documentary by Baltimore-based filmmaker Gregory Walsh. It follows two remarkable female Indian activists as they fight for the most marginalized members of society. Community Supported Films, an organization that trains storytellers from developing countries as filmmakers, presents three shorts by Afghanis. Art of Solidarity, MICA in Nicaragua, presents The Mothers of Martyrs, a documentary that revisits the Nicaraguan Revolution 30 years later by interviewing mothers who survived. They reflect on the tragedies of war with the goal of passing on their stories to a new generation and advocating for world peace.

Panel discussion follows with Elizabeth Alex from Casa Maryland, Aida Pinto-Baquero from Patterson Park Public Charter School's Mis Raices, Sawsan Al-Sayyab of International Rescue Committee, and members of the Baltimore Women's Forum, a monthly dialogue group of refugee women, including Ban Ahmed and Nidaa Haseeb of Iraq. $12, $7 mbrs, stus. 7:30pm. Info tables & craft market 7pm.
