**Post-film Q&A with director Mary Dore moderated by 90.9FM KRCL midday host Eugenie Hero Jaffe.
A provocative look at the birth of the women’s liberation movement in the late 1960’s, She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry focuses on grassroots organizers and shows a wide-reaching movement with poetry readings, women’s rock bands, and impromptu protest actions. The story is also tied to issues facing women today, from reproductive rights to sexual violence, as it shows present-day activists creating a new wave of feminism.

About the series
The Utah Film Center is launching a new film series by women directors from around the world representing the lives and stories of women on September 11, 2014 entitled Women’s Stories. The feature films included in the series highlight the accomplishments of women working in the film industry, while focusing and reflecting on issues and struggles that women continue to face daily, including the ongoing need for education and empowerment of their gender. Each film offers an opportunity to increase awareness, engagement, and advocacy around these critical issues facing women and girls in local communities and around the world.
Prior to each screening, the Film Center will host a private reception for Utah Film Center members and invited community leaders to connect and network over food and beverages, and following each film 90.9FM KRCL midday host Eugenie Hero Jaffe will moderate a Q&A with the filmmaker, or a panel discussion illuminating the issues introduced by the film highlighting actions for social change.
