A curated selection of films about women
on NFB.ca starting March 4th
In celebration of International Women’s Day, the National Film Board of Canada will stream Karen Cho’s award-winning NFB feature documentary Status Quo? The unfinished business of feminism in Canada free of charge for three days from March 8 to 10. The film zeroes in on violence against women, access to abortion, and universal child care.
The free streaming of Status Quo? is part of Know Your History!, a week-long offering of free films about women along with a special selection of DVD and Download To Own titles available for purchase. The NFB.ca site will also host blogs on the subject.
Status Quo? is also being presented at more than 60 grassroots community screenings across Canada throughout the upcoming months, by the YWCA, the Canadian Federation of University Women, Cinema Politica and the NFB’s Film Club in partner public libraries.
