Waiting Room

by Alison Lowenstein

directed by Lori Kee

We've come a long way baby, but assumptions about woman's role as primary care giver hasn't changed in millennia. In this farcical account of one mother's experience at the pediatrician's office, Lowenstein finds a new remedy for an old complaint.


Stepping Through Blood

by MJ Perrin

directed by Michele O'Brien

We all need to stand for something, but where are the boundaries between self and community? How do we draw the line, and what pushes us to cross it? A young African American lesbian, is about to find out if she really can live up to her name.


Revolution's Smite

by Baindu D. Kalokoh

directed by Melody Brooks

The political is personal and Kiongozi has learned the hard way. Released after 23 years in prison, he is ready to break bread with his old comrades, but not for a trip down memory lane. This time, telling the truth may indeed be the group's most revolutionary act.

The Color of Vengeance

by Lynn Marie Macy

directed by Sara Berg

Pink is for girls, or so they say. The Gulabi Gang agrees, but sugar and spice are not ingredients in their recipe for empowerment and justice. It's going to take a Global village to raise the right kind of ruckus for women's rights.

The Last Daughter

by Rachel Schroeder

directed by Mary Hodges

Do women really become their mothers, then rinse and repeat? Or is there a greater maternal energy available to break the cycle? Sometimes being last can be divine.

Our Lady of Broad Street

by Jane Denitz Smith

directed by Melody Brooks

The restoration of an historic New York building may have driven Alice through the looking glass when she encounters a mysterious phenomenon that threatens her sacred project. Is this a clash of civilizations, or simply a question of faith?
