Newark Readies Women In Media Film Festival

NEWARK, NJ -- “Of the Spirit” Women's History Month film festival will be held March 3 - 5, 2011 at the Paul Robeson Student Center at Rutgers, Newark campus,350 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Newark NJ.

Women In Media-Newark announced today the lineup of films selected to screen in “Of the Spirit,” their 2nd annual Women's History Month film festival. Working in conjunction with Rutgers Program of Women and Gender Studies symposium on religion, the international array of films all focus on the spirit of the divine that allows women to thrive and achieve, often in spite of harrowing conditions. Feature films include Jennifer Jessum's "Finding God In the City of Angels," which is a comprehensive survey of the myriad religions - mainstream, indigenous and completely alternative - that one finds in Los Angeles; Laslo Faria's "A Cidade das Mulheres," which, influenced by the work of anthropologist Ruth Landes, looks at Candomble in Bahia, Brazil; and Lisa F. Jackson's award winning "The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo". Four inspiring film shorts round out the offerings. Panel discussions will follow "A Cidade das Mulheres" and "The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo," and interviews with the film makers will accompany the short films.

The 2011 Women's History Month Film Festival is free and open to the public, and runs March 3 – 5, 2011 at the Paul Robeson Student Center, Rutgers – Newark, with a special screening taking place at the Newark Public Library on March 3. The complete list of films and screening schedule is available a twww.wim-n.com.

A reception will conclude the festival on Saturday, March 5th where community service awards will be given to Gloria Buck of the Newark Black Film Festival; Marcia Brown, Vice Chancellor of Rutgers – Newark; Gladys Grauer, artist; and arts educator Joyce Wilson-Harley, Essex County Administrator; and Patricia Kettenring, educator and founder of Glass Roots.
