The Athena Film Festival Premiere’s
PASSIONATE POLITICS The Life & Work of Charlotte Bunch
Passionate Politics: The Life and Work of Charlotte Bunch, is a new documentary by Tami Gold, that brings Charlotte’s story to life, from idealistic young civil rights organizer to lesbian activist, to internationally-recognized leader of a campaign to put women’s rights, front and center, on the global human rights agenda. Charlotte has been both a product and creator of her times: every chapter in her life is a chapter in the story of modern feminist activism, from its roots in the 1960’s struggles for social justice to international campaigns against gender-based violence today. Filmmakers will be present.
“Extraordinary documentary that puts body and life into the feminist idea that the personal is political,” says Rosalind Petchesky of the film, Distinguished Professor of Political Science at Hunter College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York.
