Community Education Upcoming Events
HerStory Institute Summer Cinema Series: The HerStory Institute presents a summer cinema series of films in the Watkins Theater beginning in May 2014. This partnership between Community Education and Her Point of View, an international arts and entertainment festival supporting the creative work of women, will deliver thought provoking and entertaining films that highlight the writing, producing, directing, cinematography, production design and editing in films created by women. The series will screen a range of features, shorts and documentary films including but not limited to independent and foreign films, classics, and festival favorites. In addition, the HerStory Institute will deliver monthly panels and/or workshops for film aficionados who desire a deeper understanding of the art and craft of film. Stay tuned!
Saturday August 9
The Milky Way
5pm & 7pm
The breastfeeding documentary that will change the face of American motherhood. The Milky Way is a documentary exposé about breastfeeding in the United States. Filmmakers show how women can reclaim their birthright and restore the nursing mother archetype. More than a breastfeeding promotion film, this is a film by, for, and about women. It is about the knowledge that inherently resides in every woman, how to access that knowledge and how to trust what we already know. It is a film that inspires women to say, “I can do that!” “I want to do that!”

August 9: It Felt Like Love *has been cancelled and replaced with The Milky Way. There will be no showing August 2.
