Festival in the Community: Hillside Community Center
The Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival is proud to expand our film screenings through Festival in the Community, where we host FREE screenings of select films in advance of the Festival. It’s a chance to sneak a peek before the Festival, plus a great opportunity to introduce your friends to the wonderful and thought-provoking films Rocky Mountain Women’s Film brings to the Pikes Peak region.
All seating for Film and Festival in the Community events are first come, first served. Please let us know you are coming, so we can plan for this event. There is no need to print or bring your ticket with you to the event. Just arrive 15 minutes before the screening to secure your seat.
WE ARE THE RADICAL MONARCHS
Directed by Linda Goldstein Knowlton
A group of tween girls chant into megaphones, marching in the San Francisco Trans March. Fists clenched high, they wear brown berets and vests showcasing colorful badges like “Black Lives Matter” and “Radical Beauty.” Meet the Radical Monarchs, a group of young girls of color at the front lines of social justice. Set in Oakland, the film documents the journey of the group as they earn badges for completing units in social justice. Started by two fierce, queer women of color, we follow them as they face the challenge to grow the organization, both pre- and post the 2016 election. (97 min)
