Everybody Knows...Elizabeth Murray
Director: Kristi Zea
Synopsis: Everybody Knows… Elizabeth Murray traces the life and work of this remarkable woman, whose paintings established her as a veritable iconoclast of the 20th Century art world. From an impoverished childhood to struggling as a single mother, Elizabeth fought to play in a man’s world and have it all.
Girls Gone Vinyl
Director: David London
Synopsis: A film about the true story of female DJs from around the world in a male dominated industry. No one would think that the electronic music industry is in conflict, but the truth is that DJs are more segregated that politicians or business executives.
Girls Gone Vinyl is the world's first documentary about female DJs, their struggles and successes, what inspires them and what drives them in spite of overwhelming odds. Watch these women converge on Detroit for the largest electronic music festival in North America and hear their stories firsthand.
Director: Elena Rossini
Synopsis: Multi-billion dollar industries saturate our lives with images of unattainable beauty, exporting body hatred from New York to Beirut to Tokyo. Their target? Women, and increasingly men and children. The Illusionists turns the mirror on media, exposing the absurd, sometimes humorous, and shocking images that seek to enslave us.
Missing In Action
Director: Molly Sackler
Synopsis: "Missing in Action" is the untold story of the unsung women who helped invent television in post-WWII New York. They were trailblazers in a new medium with old rules. They were television's first directors, producers, and writers; but no one knows who they are today. Most Americans know June Cleaver and Alice Kramden, and everybody loves Lucy, but no one saw the mostly uncredited women who were off-camera making live television and now it seems they never existed. This documentary turns the spotlight on these behind-the-scenes pioneers, toppling stale ideas of 1950’s women and of television’s Golden Age.

By fighting for equal rightsand reproductive choice, they changed gender politics forever — and started a revolution.
