FEBRUARY IS BLACK HISTORY MONTH!
Spotlight: STANDING ON MY SISTERS' SHOULDERS
STANDING ON MY SISTERS' SHOULDERS
"If you can show just one film on the Civil Rights Movement,
this should be the one."
Dir. Women's History program, Sarah Lawrence
Ava DuVernay's SELMA puts African-American perspectives of the civil rights movement at the forefront. This Black History Month, WMM celebrates the heroic women of the civil rights movement with the award-winning documentary STANDING ON MY SISTERS' SHOULDERS: the story of the Mississippi Civil Rights movement from the point of view of its remarkable and courageous women who changed the course of history. This film is important now more than ever given the racial climate of the country after Ferguson, subsequent events in NYC, and similar incidents happening across the nation, bringing a contemporary urgency to these issues.
Since our beginnings in 1972, WMM has grown from a feminist filmmakers' collective into an industry-leading nonprofit media arts organization and distributor. For over 40 years, WMM has transformed the landscape of filmmaking for women directors and producers, bringing the issues facing women around the world to screens everywhere. Now, with more than 550 films in our catalog, including Academy®, Emmy®, Peabody and Sundance nominees and award winners, WMM is the largest distributor of films by and about women in the world. Women Make Movies. By Women. About Women. For Everyone.
