I Was a Teenage Feminist directed by Therese Shechter. Armed with a video camera, an inquiring mind, and an irreverent sense of humor, filmmaker Therese Shechter crisscrosses both the continent and her own psyche in the hope of reconnecting to the power and sense of purpose that feminism gave her as a teenager in the 1970s.
Local shorts by Ariel Lightningchild, Pixie Cram and others will also be screened.
