SYNOPSIS The film portrays the story of a brave group of powerful young women who came together to petition for the inclusion of Woman’s Crew as a varsity sport at Boston University in the mid-1970’s. They went on to become national champions. This would not have happened without the passage of Title 9 which finally gave women the right to equal access to college sports facilities and coaches as well as the right to organize teams with varsity status.

Teranga – Life in the Waiting Room

WINNER: Best Documentary Short SYNOPSIS A stunning observational short documentary about youth, music and collective trauma set in Naples, Italy, and filmed over two years, Teranga - Life in the Waiting room vividly humanizes West African migrants living in Europe. The film depicts asylum seekers as rarely seen before, as they figure out how to fill the time while they wait endlessly for notice on their documents. Unable to work and with their lives on hold for years, they find ways to keep themselves feeling alive by relying on music as a crucial tool for resistance, survival and integration. https://vimeo.com/344283557…
