“SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHES ANGRY” resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern womens 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 womens liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of W.I.T.C.H. (Womens International Conspiracy from Hell!). Artfully combining dramatizations, performance and archival imagery, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality, and in the process created a world-wide revolution.” –www.shesbeautifulwhenshesangry.com
” Shes Beautiful When Shes Angry is the first theatrical documentary to pay tribute to the daring and often controversial women who, by fighting for their long-overdue rights between 1966 and 1971, gave birth to the current womens movement. Through its collection of archival footage, present day interview narration and dramatic readings of contemporary works, Shes Beautiful depicts the ebbs, flows and crowning achievements of the grassroots-led second wave of feminism. While the film aims to document history and educate its viewers, it also serves as a warning that the battle isnt over. ”
