W+F Opening Night: Dolores <p>Women +Film Festival Opening Night Film, Dolores Huerta in-person!! Tuesday, April 4th, 7:00pm. Opening Night Reception to follow screening.</p> <p>History tells us Cesar Chavez transformed the U.S. labor movement by leading the first farm workers’ union. But missing from this narrative is his equally influential co-founder, Dolores Huerta, who fought tirelessly alongside Chavez for racial and labor justice and became one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century.</p> <p>Like so many powerful women advocates, Dolores and her sweeping reforms were &#8211; and still are &#8211; sidelined and diminished. Even as she empowered a generation of immigrants to stand up for their rights, her relentless work ethic was constantly under attack. False accusations from foes and friends alike, of child neglect and immoral behavior—she married three times and raised 11 children &#8211; pushed Dolores out of the very union she helped create.</p> <p>Peter Bratt’s provocative and energizing documentary challenges an incomplete history. Through beautifully woven archival footage and interviews from contemporaries and from Dolores herself, now an octogenarian, the film sets the record straight on one of the most effective and undervalued civil and labor rights leaders in modern U.S. history.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

W+F Festival: Stories We Tell <p>Friday, April 7th, 6:30pm - 9:30 pm. Pre-film introduction and post-film discussion led by Melinda Barlow, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Film Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder.</p> <p>Shrouded in mystery upon its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, Sarah Polley’s extraordinary personal documentary Stories We Tell (2012) is as riveting as a complex narrative-who-done-it, with the filmmaker acting as a detective in her own life. While friends and relatives recount differing versions of a notorious family secret, the film mixes interviews and home movies into an exquisitely layered memoir that poses compelling questions. What is the relationship between history and memory? Where is the line between reality and fiction? How do we use stories to make sense of our bewildering lives? Learn about Polley’s career as a filmmaker, the significance of personal material in films directed by women, the role of home movies in contemporary filmmaking, and films that served as influences (Rashomon [1950], F for Fake [1977], and qualify as aesthetic next of kin (Capturing the Friedmans [2003], Tarnation [2004]).</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

W+F Closing Night: Sticky Notes <p>Sunday, April 9th, 6:30pm. Director Amanda Sharp in person! Closing Night Reception to precede screening at 5:00pm in Henderson's Lounge</p> <p>Sticky Notes explores the story of Athena (Rose Leslie), a struggling dancer trying to make it in LA. Athena’s father Jack (Ray Liotta) interrupts her lonely and detached existence when he asks her to move home to Florida to care for him. </p> <p>Big news: he has cancer.</p> <p>Athena fulfills her daughterly duty and reunites with her estranged and eccentric father and his sweet, lovable daughter Honey Bunny. With Athena by his side, Jack begins the roller coaster that is chemotherapy. <br />Tension builds as Jack’s health deteriorates, compounded by past and present expectations of one another that repeatedly go unmet. When Athena gets a callback for an important dance audition in LA, she is torn between staying with her increasingly demanding father at the end of his life and pursuing what has the potential to be the start of her own. <br />What follows is a heart-wrenching journey of growing up told with ample moments of humor and levity, candidly illuminating father-daughter relationships and the role reversals that take place between parents and their children.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center
