LET IT SHINE: THE STORY OF THE WOMEN’S MARCH SLO
Presented by Films for Good / Bob & Christine Williams & The Ignatius Family Foundation
Like many marches happening around the world on January 20, 2017, the Women’s March SLO was a unifying event for a wide variety of causes and peoples. This is a fun look back at how a true grassroots effort led to the largest assembly of its kind in San Luis Obispo – 10,000 strong! Documentary. 22 min.
Director/Producer: Robert Williams
Co-Producer: Women’s March SLO organizers
CATCHING SIGHT OF THELMA & LOUISE
Presented by the Women’s Legacy Fund
Filmgoers are taken on a wild ride with Thelma and Louise, beginning when they leave on their weekend getaway and ending when they sail off the canyon’s edge. We revisit their extraordinary journey through the lens of viewers who saw the namesake film in 1991 and, in a survey, wrote about the feelings it engendered at that time. Twenty-five years later, the same viewers share their present-day perceptions, comparing them with their first reactions, as do some of the original cast members. Clips from the original film serve as a catalyst for intimate, personal stories of women’s experience in the real world.
This is a fascinating study of then and now, and how much or how little things have changed since “Thelma and Louise” first startled movie-going audiences. Documentary. 87 min. Trailer.
