Schedule:

6:30pm: Becoming Ruby

Dave Mayers/2020/18 min/Health, People & Cultures, Social Justice

International Women’s Day

FILM DESCRIPTION: Not seeing herself reflected in the community she loves, mountain biker, skier and artist Brooklyn Bell created her own role model: a hand-drawn hero called Ruby J. With Ruby J as a guide, Brooklyn spent the next few years trying to “live like her, breathe like her, be unapologetically black like her,” and in the process shaped her own identity, one that intertwines her love for dirt, snow and art—and a voice with which to advocate for diversity and inclusion.

This film will precede “Maxima.”

6:30pm: Maxima

Claudia Sparrow/2019/88 min/People & Cultures, Social Justice, Historical Perspectives, Water

International Women’s Day

FILM DESCRIPTION: “Maxima” follows Peruvian indigenous farmer Máxima Acuña in her fight to protect her land as she stands up to the largest gold producer in the world: US-based Newmont Mining Corporation. Throughout Máxima’s fight for justice, the film provides an illustrative case study in the tactics used by transnational corporations to commit human rights violations and environmental crimes, the role played by non-profits and The World Bank, and, ultimately, the resilience of one woman who refuses to back down.

Tickets available to U.S. viewers only.

This film will follow “Becoming Ruby.”
