New #Documentary, 'She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry’

from sfgate.com: The most significant events in history seem inevitable in retrospect, if only because they are so transformative that it’s hard to imagine the world without them. This goes not only for towering cataclysms like World War II, but social movements that change people’s relationships with each other and with themselves. In this second category, we have the women’s liberation movement of the 1960s and early 1970s. “She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry,” a documentary about this movement, has two broad aims: The first is to rescue from the flood of time the colorful story of this era. The second is to refute the illusion of inevitability. The movie tells us, contrary to what we might tell ourselves, that change did not come about through some process of societal evolution. It came about through the specific acts of specific women.
