Ojai NOW Film Event
In celebration of Women's History Month, the Ojai Library and the Ojai Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) will host two screenings and discussion of the 2014 documentary SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY. Join us on March 23rd as we learn what women's history can teach about creating change in today's chaotic times.
This documentary resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement in the late 1960's and early 1970's. Using never-seen before archival footage, great music from the period, and artful re-enactments, SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY takes us from the founding of NOW, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation. It does not shy away from controversies over race, sexual preference and leadership that arose in the women’s movement, and brilliantly captures the spirit of the time -- thrilling, scandalous, and often hilarious.
SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY is an investigation into how movements evolve, where they go wrong or right, and problems with diversity and leadership. Ultimately, this is a film about organizing for human rights, and marries the past with what needs to be done today.
