Join us on Thurs., March 22 for a special screening and discussion of Left on Pearl as part of the 4th Annual Women’s Film Festival. Left on Pearl is a fast-paced and humorous documentary about a significant but little known chapter in the history of the Women’s Liberation Movement as it emerged from the radical political climate of the late 60s and early 70s. In 1971 Boston activists occupied a Harvard University–owned building in response to residents being displaced by campus expansion. The occupation led to the founding of the longest continuously operating community women’s center in the country.
The film was produced and directed by Susie Rivo, edited by Iftach Shavit, shot by Lynn Weissman, and executive produced by the 888 Women’s History Project. Run time: 55 minutes.
