In its ninth year, the Women of Color Film Festival showcases a diverse array of innovative short films and videos from sisters of color. It celebrates the distinct perspectives of individuals who are united in giving voice to an underrepresented group.

The curators are proud to highlight women of color as filmmakers, not only in the directorial role, but also in less visible but equally crucial positions as writers, cinematographers, and producers.

From the power of media manipulation in the animated world of teenage girls in Oakland to the poignant reunion between a father and his daughters on the streets of Tokyo to the remarkable love between a married couple during the 1921 Tulsa race riots, each filmmaker delivers a universal yet deeply individual slice of life.

- Linda Charmaraman, curator

7:30 The Secret Language of Youth
In settings as diverse as an urban American Indian reservation, the Cambodian sex trade, and a women's basketball court, women's voices tell of the challenging life decisions young people face. J. Orchid Lan Pusey searches for a sense of historical identity among the names of five generations of women in her family in And You Are? (13 mins). Moccasin Flats (Randy Redroad, Produced by Laura Milliken, Jennifer Podemski, Canada, 2002, 24 mins) depicts a winding path of love, loss, and split-second decisions on an urban Indian reservation. While the animation of Ravishing Raspberry (Shawnee and Shawnelle Gibbs, 10 mins) is a tasty treat for the eyes, it depicts a teenage girl's bitter struggle with popular standards of beauty

Also screening: White Like the Moon (Marina Gonzalez Palmier, 2002, 22.5 mins, 35mm); Something Between Her Hands (Sonya Shah, 16 mins); A Secret Language (Arti Jain, 5 mins); Shooter (J. J. Goldberger, 24 mins) Total running time: 114 mins plus discussion
