Film night! “Feminist Occupations” from the 1970s to Today


Wednesday, August 3, 2022

6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

Join us for an in-person film night at the Archive coinciding with the current exhibit, Our Streets! Our City! Co-sponsored by the Third World Newsreel.

This is an in-person event — masks and rsvps are required. 

Assembling together a variety of short documentary films under the theme of “Feminist Occupations,” this screening event will highlight the often overlooked history of feminist direct action and spatial intervention, connecting the dots from the 1970s in NYC to current activist movements in the Bay Area today. This will be followed by an open conversation around the significance and strategies of these actions, histories and documentary methods, particularly in relationship to thinking through and advancing a broader feminist urban politics.

The Our Streets! Our City! exhibition is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
