The Hippodrome Cinema will be showing “She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry” for the March Cinema Lounge on Tuesday, March 10, at 7:30 pm and 10 pm, for one night only!
“She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry” resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966 to 1971. The film takes us from the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation, from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of WITCH (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!).
It does not shy away from controversies over race, sexual preference and leadership that arose in the women’s movement, and brilliantly captures the spirit of the time—thrilling, scandalous, and often hilarious.
Carol Giardina, the co-founder for Gainesville Women’s Liberation, is featured in “She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry.”
The Gainesville Women’s Liberation was the first female liberation group in the South. GWL has now expanded to become National Women’s Liberation.
In addition, there will be a discussion following the first showing featuring second wave feminist pioneer Kathie Sarachild, SNCC veteran Zoharah Simmons, and NWL member Kendra Vincent.
Seating for “She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry” is limited, and tickets are $10. Advanced reservations are recommended.
This documentary is not rated and is 92 minutes long.
