WMM: In Theaters 10/3: Critically-Acclaimed Documentary THE SUPREME PRICE in NY + LA



CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED DOCUMENTARY
"THE SUPREME PRICE"
TO BE RELEASED IN THEATERS OCT. 3 IN NYC & LA

"THE SUPREME PRICE is a deeply profound and beautiful experience,
and an integral film to watch."  - Indiewire

"THE SUPREME PRICE is one of ten films all human rights activists
should see." - Huffington Post



October 3-10 at Quad Cinema
in New York City
**
**Filmmaker present for Q&A following the 5:10pm and 7:20pm shows on Sunday 10/5
In 1993 Nigeria elected M.K.O. Abiola as president in a historic vote that promised to end years of military dictatorship. Shortly after the election, Abiola was imprisoned as another military regime seized power, and his wife, Kudirat, took over the leadership of the pro-democracy movement, organizing strikes and marches and winning international attention for the Nigerian struggle. Because of this work, she too became a target and was assassinated in 1996. Director Joanna Lipper elegantly dovetails past and present as she tells this story through the eyes of Hafsat Abiola, who was about to graduate from Harvard when her mother was murdered. Her father died in prison two years later under mysterious circumstances. Determined not to let her parents' democratic ideals die with them, Hafsat returns to Nigeria after years in exile and is at the forefront of a progressive movement to empower women and dismantle the patriarchal structure of Nigerian society.  THE SUPREME PRICE provides a unprecedented look inside of Africa's most populous nation, exposing the tumultuous, violent history of a deeply entrenched corrupt culture of governance where a tiny circle of political elites monopolize billions of dollars worth of oil revenue while the masses remain impoverished.

 Contact: Beverly Wettenstein

FOOD & WINE TO PUBLISH "WOMEN WHO RULE FOOD WORLD" IN JANUARY

WHEN WILL WOMEN CHEFS RISE UP TO BE ON FOOD & WINE "BEST NEW CHEFS" LIST?

Beverly Wettenstein's annual status report on women chefs and restaurateurs published today: 



Advocacy journalism works!   She reports exciting news and milestones for women on the culinary calendar:

FOOD & WINE DEDICATES JANUARY ISSUE TO WOMEN WHO RULE FOOD WORLD

Wettenstein's advocacy, letters and annual reports for more than a decade -- along with leading, outspoken women chefs -- have made a difference. The proof is in the pudding.  Dana Cowin, longtime Editor In Chief of Food & Wine, called to tell her F&W  will dedicate the January 2015 issue to the women who rule the food world.

CALL TO ACTION FOR WOMEN LEADERS:  HOW TO SUPPORT WOMEN CHEFS AND RESTAURATEURS

Wettenstein is on a mission to urge women leaders and event planners to put your money where your mouth is and turn up the heat.  Seek and support women chefs and restaurateurs when booking events and conferences.  This is especially important for events honoring women and sponsored by women's organizations.  She also recommends requesting and hiring female wait and bar staff, to support working women.
