The Tin Shed and The Lending Shed are co-sponsoring a Women’s Film Series to be shown this summer in Patagonia.
A group of Patagonia residents were invited to choose six films produced by Women Make Movies. Women Make Movies (WMM), a non-profit social enterprise based in New York, is the world’s leading distributor of independent films by and about women.
The group’s selections will be shown from June through October featuring cutting-edge documentaries that give depth to today’s headlines, to smart, stunning films that push artistic and intellectual boundaries in all genres.”
In this day of #MeToo and a renewed interest in issues pertaining to a woman’s life experience, The Sheds will be offering opportunities for residents to see award-winning
films which have been exhibited in museums, television, theaters, libraries and universities; films used by thousands of educational customers and community groups throughout the US and the world. These films have garnered top prizes at prestigious film festivals such as Cannes and Sundance.
The Sheds are proud to present these films and invite you to bring your daughters, wives, sisters and friends to take advantage of this unique opportunity. Depending on the film there may be a discussion of the film after the showing. The current plan is to show one film per month and six films this season.
There will be a donation for attendance and proceeds will be shared between The Tin Shed and The Lending Shed (sponsored by Family Health Care Amigos). In keeping with The Tin Shed’s tradition, wine and cheese will be available before, during intermission or after the film.
Dates and times of the showings will be listed in upcoming issues of the PRT.
