FILM | Women's History Month Film Series 

The Susan B. Anthony Institute this month celebrates Women's History Month with a collection of six films directed by women about women who fight back against oppression. The series is co-presented by The Little Theatre, the Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies, Nazareth College, and The College at Brockport's Women and Gender Studies Program. It kicks off on Thursday, March 1, at 6:30 p.m., with Jane Campion's 1993 film, "The Piano," in which mute Scottish pianist Ada has been sold into marriage, but navigates all kinds of conflict as she chooses her own destiny. Other titles include "Viktoria," "32 Pills: My Sister's Suicide," "La Danza Hipocampo," "The Rape of Recy Taylor," and "Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts."

All screenings take place at The Little Theatre (140 East Avenue) and most will be followed by panel discussions led by local educators and activists. $9 per screening, with discounts for seniors, students, and members. For more information about each screening, call 244-0400 or visit thelittle.org.
