She's Beautiful When She's Angry chronicles the women, daughters, mothers, and sisters who carved the political path for feminists in the United States. From NOW (National Organization of Women) to WITCH (Women's International Conspiracy from Hell), She's Beautiful unearths archival footage of the original equal rights activists in all of their girl-power glory. From 1966 to 1971, the second wave of feminism flooded the streets and drowned out the advocates for the inequalities of yesteryear. The first film to feature archival footage from this monumental time period, She's Beautiful shows women's liberation through firsthand accounts of female activists who led the fight, including Muriel Fox, founder of NOW; Jo Freeman, a member of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference; and Judith Arcane, a member of JANE, an uderground abortion service in Chicago. She's Beautiful is showing at Upstate Films in Rhinebeck on March 7 (followed by a Q&A with editor/producer Nancy Kennedy) and at Upstate Films in Woodstock on March 8 (followed by a Q&A with writer Sheila Isenberg). The film also screens at Time and Space Limited in Hudson March 12 through 15 and March 21 to 22. Upstatefilms.org; Timeandspace.org.
