Description

Three short films about remarkable women working in such diverse fields

THE COMPUTERS

Directors/Producers: Kathy Kleiman, Jon Palfreman, Kate McMahon Women are vastly under-represented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) fields, holding under 25% of STEM jobs. However, in the 1940s, six brilliant young women, 'The Computers', programmed the world's first all-electronic, programmable computer as part of a secret WWII project for the US Army. They learned to program without programming languages or tools (for none existed), and their program worked perfectly. Yet, when the ENIAC was unveiled to the press and public in 1946, they were never introduced; the ENIAS Programmers became invisible. (20 minutes)

WHERE WE STAND

Director/Producer: Kristine Stolakis The story of a controversial group of Mormon feminists fighting for women's rights in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Abby Hansen, a stay-at-home mom turned vocal advocate for Ordain Women, navigates the repercussions of her unpopular activism against her church in her predominantly Mormon suburb. The film is not just for Mormons. It is not just for feminists. It is for anyone who has questioned what it means to believe and to belong. (20 minutes)

BRAVE DOLLS

Director, Maximiliano Gonzalez and Julieta Cherep What happens when prostitutes get older? The film follows the 'Munecas Bravas' living in Xochiquetzal's house in the heart of Mexico City which claims to be the only home in the world for elderly prostitutes who have nowhere else to go. (26 minutes)
