San Antonio Feminist Film Festival

In its inaugural year, the San Antonio Feminist Film Festival (aka Scene & Heard) hopes to kick-start some serious conversations with the four films screening during its inconsecutive two-night event. On Tuesday, the double bill includes the 2015 documentary He Named Me Malala about young Pakistani activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban for speaking out on education rights for women in her country. The film is followed by 2010’s Maria in Nobody’s Land, a doc that tells the story of three Salvadoran women making their way to the U.S. on the tops of trains. On Thursday (January 21), SAFFF screens the 2013 doc Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth on the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize in fiction (The Color Purple) and the 2014 “abortion comedy” Obvious Child starring comedian Jenny Slate. “We wanted to pay tribute to women who are making global change,” said La Juana Chambers, SAFFF committee member. “The idea is to commemorate women’s struggles and empower others.”
