Philadelphia Premieres!

These two documentaries by recent graduates of the UC Santa Cruz Social Documentation Program are exciting films engaged with ideas as well as communities, and crafted to deliver perspectives and stories that are equally legible to their subjects and their audiences.

OVARIAN PSYCOS

dirs. Kate Trumbull-Lavalle & Joanna Sokolowski, US, 2016, 72 min

The “Ovas” are a group of young Latina women in East Los Angeles who find power and agency by banding together into a bicycle squad that fights for justice, visibility, and an end to domestic violence, all with passion and high spirits.

FISHERMEN WITHOUT A SEA

dir. Lucas Bonetti, US, 2016, 20 min

Bonetti’s fishermen lament the state of Rio’s Guanabara Bay, made infamous by concerns over a polluted Olympics, but also navigate the audience through the disappearing beauty of the place they call home. 

Followed by a discussion with B. Ruby Rich, Editor in chief of Film Quarterly and Professor of Film and Digital Media at UC Santa Cruz

Producers’ Forums are supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, PNC Arts Alive, Philadelphia Cultural Fund, and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
