Join me at a free(!) showing of the incomparable documentary "Left on Pearl" about the 1971 takeover and 10-day and night occupation of a Harvard building by a group of feminists, myself included. The takeover led to the establishment of the Women's Center in Cambridge - now the longest-running active such center in the States.
The film isn't quite done, but the few showings the filmmakers have had along the way of creating it have been instant sell-outs full-house events. I'm in the film and proud to be associated with it.
The filmmaker Susie Rivo and I (that's a photo of me from those days) will be around for the free showing at Kopkind, one of the most innovative and creative bodies encouraging progressive film-making, journalism and new media. The setting is exquisite in Guilford (closest city is Brattleboro).
Saturday, August 6
7:30 - Screening, followed by discussion
"LEFT ON PEARL", a film about the 1971 takeover of a Harvard-owned building in Cambridge, Mass., for what would become the first women’s center in the country, an action that embodied many of the hopes, glories, conflicts and tensions of Second Wave feminism.
Join filmmaker Susan Rivo and special guest Sue Katz, author, activist and former Guilford resident who was involved in this historic occupation. At the Organ Barn, Guilford, VT"
