Women Wielding Cameras: Women, Power and Politics Film Festival

On Saturday, June 14, 2008 the International Museum of Women will present four documentary films on women, power and politics at the San Francisco Public Library.

The featured films include "Las Madres: The Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo," about Argentina's "Dirty War" of the 1970s and 1980s, "God Sleeps in Rwanda," about women rebuilding their lives after the genocide in Rwanda, "Dishing Democracy" about an Arab satellite TV show that presents controversial issues, and "Run Granny Run" telling the story of Doris "Granny D" Haddock who at age 90 walked across America to protest the influence of big money in American politics.

Filmmakers Lourdes Portillo, Kimberlee Acquaro, Marlo Poras and political activist Granny D. Haddock will be in attendance to comment on the films and answer questions from the audience.
This event is presented in conjunction with the International Museum of Women global online exhibition of the same name. For more information visit
