A Litany for Survival: The Life and Work of Audre Lorde - March 8th!
This film by Ada Gay Griffin and Michelle Parkerson, is an epic portrait of the eloquent, award-winning Black, lesbian, poet, mother, teacher and activist, Audre Lorde, whose writings -- spanning five decades -- articulated some of the most important social and political visions of the century.
From Lorde's childhood roots in NYC's Harlem to her battle with breast cancer, this moving film explores a life and a body of work that embodied the connections between the Civil Rights movement, the Women's movement, and the struggle for lesbian and gay rights. At the heart of this documentary is Lorde's own challenge to "envision what has not been and work with every fiber of who we are to make the reality and pursuit of that vision irresistible."
A Third World Newsreel film, presented by Third World Newsreel with the Documentary Forum at CCNY and Maysles CInema, as part of the Made in Harlem screenings, Women's History Month and Black History year, and in celebration of Third World Newsreel's 50th Anniversary.
