Double bill: Maria Querida & Claudia Jones: Hidden Herstories

Two significant feminists who deserve greater recognition plus discussion.


(Doors open 10.20am, screening starts 11am sharp)

MARÍA QUERIDA
Jose Luis Garcia Sanchez, Spain 2004 [U], Spanish with EST, 91 mins

In 1984, having returned to Spain after 45 years of exile, María Zambrano Alarcon (Pilar Bardem), philosopher and essayist was awarded the Cervantes Prize. A young journalist and daughter of a teacher, Lola (María Bottol), attends the press conference and becomes fascinated when she learns that Zambrano too was a teacher but had never practised professionally. Like Zambrano, many Republican intellectuals were forced into exile after the civil war. They suffered separation from their loved ones and their country and longed to return. Journalist and filmmaker Lola has questions to which she searches for answers, while María Zambardo's wisdom helps Lola make decisions in her personal life.

Nominations for: Best Actress Award (Pilar Bardem) and Best Supporting Actress Award (María Botto)

HIDDEN HERSTORIES: CLAUDIA JONES
Octavia Foundation Young People, UK 2010 [U], 15 mins
Hidden Herstories: Women of Change exposes the plight and determination of heroines forgotten by society. One of these, Claudia Jones (1945-1964), was a founder of the West Indian Workers and Students Association, started the West Indian Gazette, protested against the racist murder of Kelso Cochrane and launched the first Caribbean carnival in the UK in 1959. Stephanie Vaz, one of 20 young filmmakers involved in the learning project, said: 'We have had the chance to be involved in every aspect of film.'

Discussion led by Carl-Henrik Bjerstrom, Research Associate, and Mary Davis, visiting Professor, both of Royal Holloway University of London, and Sara Callaway of Women of Colour Global Women's Strike
