She's Beautiful When She's Angry

Gibsons Heritage Playhouse, Fri Mar 15, 7:30pm.

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 WITCH (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!). It does not shy away from controversies over race, sexual preference and leadership that arose in the women’s movement, and brilliantly captures the spirit of the time -- thrilling, scandalous, and often hilarious.

USA / 2015 / 92min / documentary / Rated 14A Directed by Mary Dale.

The Radicals

Gibsons Heritage Playhouse, Sun Mar 31, 2pm.

The Radicals (2018, Canada, 58 min.) follows Marie-France Roy, Meghann O’Brien, Jasper Snow Rosen and Tamo Campos from their extreme pursuits in the mountains and oceans into the world of activism. Together this group of snowboarders and surfers journey across the West Coast of British Columbia, weaving a story of learning, inspiration and resistance. From the Tahltan fight for the Iskut Headwaters, BC Hydro’s corruption in Xwísten, art as resilience on Haida Gwaii, to a coastal uprising against fish farms off the coast of Vancouver Island, each community teaches the athletes to understand what it means to be a true radical.

Combining visually stunning sport photography and behind the scenes footage from the frontlines, the film’s trajectory fulfills both the action-sport athlete's quest for extreme landscapes and adventure while uncovering critical social issues and resistance.
