!WOMEN ART REVOLUTION - A Secret History
!Women Art Revolution (!W.A.R.) charts the evolution of the Feminist Art Movement in America from the 1960s to the present, illuminating how this multi-faceted and under-explored movement—which some claim to be the most significant one of the late 20th century—radically transformed the art and culture of our times.
Armed with a borrowed camera, Hershman Leeson began interviewing fellow artists in her living room, in Berkeley, California, as early as 1966. Through conversations, art, and rarely-seen archival footage, visionary artists, curators and critics present an intimate portrayal of their fight to break down the barriers facing women both in the art world and society at large. The countless groundbreaking figures starring in it include Marcia Tucker, Nancy Spero, Silvia Sleigh, Carolee Schneemann, Miriam Schapiro, B. Ruby Rich, Yvonne Rainer, Yoko Ono, Miranda July, The Guerrilla Girls, Judy Chicago and many others.
!W.A.R. has the rare honor to screen at Berlin, Sundance and Toronto Festivals. It will have its theatrical premiere at New York City’s IFC Center on June 3, 2011. !W.A.R. is a Zeitgeist Films Release.
