FEATURED - HONORING WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH
In honor of Women's History Month, we'd like to present three of our films focused on women: Of Beauty
and Deities: Music & Dance of India; along with Letitia Moore, Esq. (from our series "Roots &
Branches);" and The Spanish Experimentals of Eve A. Ma . The first two of these are documentaries
filmed in California. The third, as the title implies, was filmed in Spain.
Of Beauty & Deities looks at a beautiful, ancient classical southern Indian dance tradition
performed by dancers in California who have been trained by a famous dancer from India and his California wife.
Letitia Moore, Esq. is an extended interview with a woman who was the first black mayor of a California
city as well as a high-level staff lawyer in the Environmental Protection Agency. Our third choice, The Spanish
Experimentlas, includes three short films, one of which tells the story of a flamenco dance costume maker
in Spain on her special day. A second, inspired by the music you hear in the background, shows a woman who encounters
unexpected tragedy. The third - well, the flower is probably a woman.
Put these films together and you get women of vastly different backgrounds engaged in significantly different occupations.
