RRR Radio in conjunction with Girls On Film Festival excitedly present Hero Babes a mini film festival within a film festival, bringing together 4 inspiring, thought provoking and meaningful films about everyday heroes and the power of finding your voice.
Every babe can be the hero of their own story. Every babe can change the world. Come on down to GOFF's Hero Babes event presented by RRR, and held in the RRR studio's performance space, with an awesome lineup of films including 'In The Turn', 'Fatenah, 'Black Panther Woman', and 'She's Beautiful When She's Angry.'
In the Turn: This film profiles queer skaters across the country, but the focal point of the film is the journey of Crystal, a 10-year old transgender girl from Canada who is not allowed to play sports in her school. Crystal finds a place for herself in the world of roller derby, one of the only organised sports with a trans-inclusive policy that prevents discrimination.
Fatenah: Fatenah is an animation that was liberally inspired by a true story. The original story was re-adapted so that Fatenah could represent any young woman from Gaza that embarks on the arduous journey of seeking medical care which is not available within the Gaza Strip.
Black Panther Woman: In 1972 Marlene Cummins fell in love with the leader of the Australian Black Panther Party. With the break up of that relationship, she spiraled into a cycle of addiction that left her on the streets and vulnerable. Forty years later Marlene travels to a gathering of international Black Panthers in New York. The journey takes her back in time. Still struggling with addiction, she reveals the secrets she has held onto, to face her demons today.
She's Beautiful When She's Angry: Resurrecting the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women's movement from 1966 to 1971. This film takes us from the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women's liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of W.I.T.C.H. (Women's International Conspiracy from Hell!) Artfully combining dramatisations, performance, and archival imagery, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality, and in the process created a world-wide revolution.
These sessions will be hosted in conversation with one of our GOFF-mothers, who will facilitate empowering discussion for our hero babes. The GOFF-mothers will be announced on the 22nd of September!
