October 25 DOUBLE FEATURE!
2:00 pm SPILLED WATER – Directed by May Tchao
3:30 pm JENS JENSEN THE LIVING GREEN – Directed by Carey Lundin
SPILLED WATER explores the lives of four Chinese women as their country’s rapid economic transformation shifts their roles, rights and status as mothers, wives and daughters. Through their intimate stories, we learn how and why gender equality in China is so hard-earned but worth the struggle.
Few know the name JENS JENSEN today but his ideas about making city life healthy and green could not be more important. He battled endemic corruption and stood up to the most powerful men in America to save the Dunes of Indiana, set aside parks all over the Midwest, and make the south and west sides of Chicago livable for the working poor.
