She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry is a new documentary that includes interviews, footage and background about the Women’s Rights Movement between 1966 and 1971, what is considered the “early years” of the Modern Women’s Movement.
SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966 to 1971. SHE’S BEAUTIFUL takes us from the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of W.I.T.C.H. (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!). Artfully combining dramatizations, performance and archival imagery, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality, and in the process created a world-wide revolution.
The film is screening in select theaters nation wide, and in NYC at the Sunshine Theater until this Thursday, December 12th.
