We Women Warriors at Docuweeks 2012
Thrilled to announce our world premiere & oscar-qualifying screenings this August in NYC and LA. Please join us at a screening & invite friends and family! For screenings 5:15 PM and onward there will be a Q and A with Director/Producer Nicole Karsin & hopefully film protagonist Flor Ilva Trochez from Colombia.
We Women Warriors follows three native women caught in the crossfire of Colombia's warfare who use nonviolent resistance to defend their peoples' survival. Colombia has 102 aboriginal groups, one-third of which face extinction because of the conflict. Despite being trapped in a protracted predicament financed by the drug trade, indigenous women are resourcefully leading and creating transformation imbued with hope. We Women Warriors bears witness to neglected human rights catastrophes and interweaves character-driven stories about female empowerment, unshakable courage, and faith in the endurance of indigenous culture.
The first week of screenings (August 10-16) will take place in NYC at the IFC, then the film will travel to LA for another week of screenings (August 24-30)at the Laemmle in North Hollywood. For screening times for each day please check out our website!
We hope to see you there!
