Experience the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women's movement in the years 1966 to 1971. SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY takes us from the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women's liberation, running the gamut from such intellectuals as Kate Millett to the street theatrics of WITCH (Women's International Conspiracy From Hell!). The film is the first theatrically released documentary to explore the early days of the women's movement in all its exhilarating, quarrelsome, and at times heart-wrenching glory. Without shying away from controversies over race, sexual orientation, and leadership, it captures the spirit of the time — thrilling, scandalous, and often hilarious. Directed by Mary Dore, co-director of the award-winning documentary THE GOOD FIGHT: THE ABRAHAM LINCOLN BRIGADE IN THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR (1984). "As provocative, colorful and light-hearted as its title, this is an important film about serious women doing the serious work of feminism, but also having fun — the time of their lives, in fact — while changing the world." — Eleanor Pam, President, Feminist Veterans of America. (Not rated, 92 min.)
