Women Make Movies is pleased to announce the availability of our new 2004 Film and Video Catalog!

As global concerns become increasingly important, WMM is more dedicated than ever to bringing the perspectives of women to the forefront of pubic discussion with a collection that is international, timely and diverse. To that end, this year's catalog features 24 extraordinary New Releases that address some of today's most relevant social and human rights issues.

Featured is an impressive collection of films from women in the Middle East and South Asia, which includes Afghanistan Unveiled by Brigitte Brault and the Aina Women Filming Group, the first team of women journalists to be trained in that country and For a Place Under the Heavens, by Sabiha Sumar (Who Will Cast the First Stone and Don't Ask Why). Sumar's latest feature, Silent Waters, will be screening in New Directors/New Films in New York later this month.

We're also proud to offer a number of new titles that explore both the political history and contemporary issues in Latin American countries, including The Kidnapping of Ingrid Betancourt, by Victoria Bruce and Karin Hayes, and War Takes, by Adelaida Trujillo and Patricia Castaņo, both of which address the current situation in Colombia.

Finally, we're excited to present some of the year's most anticipated films, including Beah: A Black Woman Speaks, by LisaGay Hamilton, which is featured on this year's catalog cover. This moving tribute to the life of actress, poet and activist Beah Richards documents her struggles against racial stereotypes in Hollywood and New York, and her passionate work for Civil Rights. Find out more about these and other New Releases at
