Athens Cine screening of "She's Beautiful When She's Angry"

Athens Cine
Women's History Month

In honor of Women's History Month, Ciné presents the new feature documentary, SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY. Resurrecting 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, when ladies wore 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!).

Remarkably, there has never before been a theatrical documentary about the early days of women’s liberation. SHE’S BEAUTIFUL aims not to romanticize the early movement, but to dramatize it in its exhilarating, quarrelsome, sometimes heart-wrenching glory. The film does not shy away from the controversies over race, sexual preference and leadership that arose in the women’s movement, and captures the spirit of the time -- thrilling, scandalous, and often hilarious.
