Montana film premiere of "Cuban Women in Revolution"
2:00 PM
Bozeman Public Library
Description:
In honor of International Women’s Day, on Sunday, March 3, from 2-5 PM, at the Bozeman Public Library Large Community Room, GVFC will feature the Montana premiere of the 2018 film documentary, "Cuban Women in Revolution," by Argentinian movie producer Maria Torrellas. If this movie has one message, it is the strength and confidence Cuban women have from the earliest stages of childhood to seniors who still contribute to society. In moving imagery, the film brings to life the heroines of the Cuban Revolution: from the clandestine operations against the U.S.-supported dictator Batista, to the attack on the Moncada in 1953, the time with Fidel and Raul in the Sierra Maestra and the role they played after the victory of the revolution in 1959. The contemporary women protagonists of the movie proudly explain the roles of Vilma Espin, Celia Sanchez, Haydee Santemaria as makers of the revolution, the impact they had and the example they represent in their lives and that of all Cubans. After the 90 minute viewing (in Spanish with English subtitles), we’ll have a discussion and comments by some community women who have travelled to Cuba as well as travel information about the upcoming 2019 US Women’s Delegation on Women’s Health and Human Rights.
