11:00 am PSBT FILM A BODY THAT WILL SPEAK Sukanya Sen & Pawas
Bisht, 30 min (Followed by discussion with the Filmmakers) A
film about not being perfect. A film about the never ending
attempts to make the body 'speak for the self in a meaningful
and powerful way'. A journey to move beyond disorders and
discover the real women battling the fantasies around and
within them. Fantasies, unsparing and hard, staring down at
them, telling them that 'they are never quite there, that
they should be trying harder'.

11:45 am SOUTH ASIA PREMIERE ABOUT THE BODY, Alona Seroussi &
Keren Yehezkely-Goldstein, Israel, 55 min Michal, Ilana, Hila
and Aviv are four young women in their 20s, severely injured
in terrorist attacks. For three months the camera follows
them in a unique body workshop by Israel Prize Winning dancer
Ohad Naharin. After the injury they were all compelled to
confront a new perception of their selves and their
femininity. A story about the brave journey they undertake to
reconnect to their once cherished bodies. Best Emerging

Israel. Montenegro International TV Festival, Yugoslavia.
Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival, USA.

12:45 pm SOUTH ASIA PREMIERE TOMBOYS! FEISTY GIRLS AND
SPIRITED WOMEN, Julie Akeret & Christian McEwen USA, 28 min
In this lively, inspiring documentary, interviews with
African-American women are intercut with personal photographs
and archival footage to celebrate tomboys of all ages. The
connection between the rebel girl and the spirited woman is
gloriously clear. Their tales of energy and enterprise are a
revelation to us all. Audience Award, Long Island Gay and
Lesbian Film Festival. Northampton Independent
