Women's History Month Film Series: Women Who Fight!

March is Women's History Month!  Celebrate by watching some fantastic films by and about women at The Little Theatre.
This month The Little Theatre in Rochester is celebrating Women's History Month with a collection of documentary and narrative films about trailblazing women. 

Special speakers, including local educators and women's right advocates, will lead audience discussion after most of the films.

The series is sponsored by The Little Theatre and by The Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender and Women's Studies at the University of Rochester.

The next screening is on International Women's Day 2018, Thursday, March 8.  Here is a short description from Rotten Tomatoes:

Viktoria (Maya Vitkova, 2014, Bulgaria)

"Dreaming of the West, Boryana is determined not to have a child in communist Bulgaria. Nonetheless, her daughter Viktoria enters the world in 1979, curiously missing a belly button, and is declared the country's Baby of the Decade. Pampered by her mother state until the age of nine, Viktoria's decade of notoriety comes crashing down with the rest of European communism. But can political collapse and the hardship of new times finally bring Viktoria and her reluctant mother closer together?"

You can find out more about this film, and the others in the series, on The Little's website.  

If you'd like more information, please contact Ilka Datig at idatig5@naz.edu.  She is a member of the organizing committee and will be happy to you more about the series.
