Filmworks is proud to support LUNAFEST in bringing a new selection of virtual films to our communities.
Join our friends at LUNAFEST on Saturday, March 20, beginning at noon. Once you purchase tickets, you’ll able to view the films until noon on Monday, March 22, from the comfort of your couch.
This season’s program of seven selected films will compel discussion, make you laugh, tug at your heartstrings, and motivate you to make a difference in your community. Incredibly diverse in style and content, LUNAFEST is united by a common thread of exceptional storytelling — by and about women.
- “Overexposed: Filming an Arctic Odyssey” by Holly Morris: A behind-the-scenes look at the film team that captured the daring story of the Women’s Euro-Arabian North Pole Expedition.
- “Knocking Down the Fences” by Meg Shutzer: AJ Andrews, the first woman to win a Rawlings Gold Glove Award, struggles to make it as one of the best professional softball players in the world.
- “A Line Birds Cannot See” by Amy Bench: Separated from her mother at the border, a 12-year-old sets out on a harrowing journey to the United States to find her.
- “The Scientists Versus Dartmouth” by Sharon Shattuck: A young neuroscientist and her colleagues make a life-changing decision to speak up for women in science everywhere.
- “Until She Is Free” by Maria Finitzo: Mixed-media artist Sophia Wallace imagines a culturally cliterate world, where all people are equal and able to live with rich possibility and purpose.
- “Connection” by Tracy Nguyen-Chung and Ciara Lacy: A lifelong angler, Autumn Harry had never fished beyond the waters of her reservation — until she picked up a fly rod.
- “Betye Saar: Taking Care of Business” by Christine Turner: There’s no stopping this legendary artist, even at age 93.
