Hi All,

 

I'm writing from Women Make Movies, the leading nonprofit distributor of
films by and about women. I thought the members of this listserv would
be interested in our newest release, the 2013 Academy Award(r) nominee
KINGS POINT, a captivating educational resource that The Huffington Post
calls, " a magnificent film.... the wake-up call we all need to
understand the mindsets of our parents and grandparents as they
contemplate the final stages of their lives". KINGS POINT is a fantastic
addition to classrooms, organizations and libraries focused on women's
health, aging, Jewish studies, and sociology. To celebrate this release,
WMM is offering a special promotion of 50% off 2012 Academy Award(r)
winner SAVING FACE when you buy KINGS POINT at list price.*

 

I'm including some additional info on KINGS POINT and the related
special offer. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and
thanks as always for supporting independent women filmmakers!

During the 1970s and 80s, thousands of New York's primarily Jewish
senior citizens migrated to Kings Point, a retirement community in
Florida. Lured by blue skies, sunshine and the promise of richer social
lives, they bought paradise for a mere $1,500 down payment. 2013 Academy
Award(r) nominee for Best Documentary (Short Subject), Kings Point
tracks the stories of five residents of this typical retirement complex
who arrived decades ago with their health intact and spouses by their
sides. Now that they and their community, comprised primarily widowed
women, face advanced age and mortality, paradise demands a higher price.
Through candid interviews the film exposes the dynamic interplay of
their desire for independence, need for community, and ambivalence
toward growing old. Filmmaker and Emmy(r) nominee Sari Gilman deftly
balances seriousness with humor, providing a bittersweet look at love,
loss and self-preservation as well as a deeply empathetic portrait of
aging in America and the American Dream's last act.

Winner of the Academy Award(r) for Best Documentary (Short Subject),
SAVING FACE is a harshly realistic view of violence against women in
South Asia - a topic that is seen constantly in the news these days.
Every year in Pakistan, many women are known to be victimized by brutal
acid attacks, with numerous cases going unreported. 

 

Plastic surgeon Dr. Mohammad Jawad left his prominent London practice to
return to his home country and help the victims of such attacks. Two of
these women, Zakia and Rukhsana, are victims of brutal acid attacks by
their husbands and in Rukhsana's case, her in-laws as well. Both attempt
to bring their assailants to justice and move on with their lives with
the help of NGOs, sympathetic policymakers, politicians, support groups
with other acid attack victims and Dr. Jawad. SAVING FACE also depicts a
Pakistan that is changing - one where ordinary people can stand up and
make a difference, and where marginalized communities can seek justice.
