This Monday, May 8th on Women’s Magazine we will talk to two independent women filmakers about their films that will be showing in the Bay Area this week. Preeti Shekar talks to Linda Mandrayar, about her film "White Rainbow", a film that explores the oppression and exploitation of widows in Indian society and will be showing at Elmwood Theatre in Berkeley beginning May 12. And we will talk to community activist and filmaker Grace Poore about her film "The Children We Sacrifice" a film about sexual abuse of children in South Asian communities. We will talk about her film, the issue of abuse and how she uses her film to moblize political resistance to abuse. We will also hear poems by women, the women’s calendar and a Mother’s Day tribute.
