Synopsis: Jill, a recent college dropout and widow, can't seem to get life right. While ruining all of her remaining relationships, she finds herself going down some twisted rabbit hole inspired by her recent discovery of Karl Marx and the German language only to learn that things have become a bit mental. Amber Love, programmer from the New Orleans Film Festival, states: "The accomplished final product of 2015-16 Emerging Voices filmmaker Kenna J. Moore, She Was Famous is an unflinching portrait of mental illness treatment’s efficacy when done well and when it goes horribly wrong."

This panel explores the emerging fourth wave of feminism, noting both its challenges and its awesome potential. To succeed, this wave will require all feminists from all races, cultures, religions, ethnicities, ideologies, orientations, and gender identification of all living generations, for we need the experiences, perspectives, knowledge, and passion of all feminists. Our diversity could be our Achilles’s heel, but it could also become our greatest source of resistance. As the goal of feminism is to achieve full equality of all genders, the purpose of this panel then is to bring together a diverse group of women who are working in various mediums to advance social justice and women’s empowerment and explore ways that we may connect to build an intergenerational, intersectional, and inclusive movement.

Her Story: Mėlange Dance Company

To order tickets:

Mėlange Dance Company presents HerStory, a journey of the waves of feminism “to bring monumental moments in 'herstory' to life. Watch the layers unfold as we portray the struggles and triumphs faced throughout the decades in a dynamic series of movement matched with time period costuming, music, and film. Our passionate dancers wear many hats, bringing to life key figures, including the unyielding Suffragists, our own NOLA Sazerac Stormers, the role reversing Rosie the Riveters, groovy 'bra burners’ who fought to pass legislation to secure women's rights, and more. Of course, we now emphasize the strength of a modern new wave that will break that glass ceiling. After all, 'women's rights are human rights', and 'there is no true peace without justice and equity for all'!”
