The contemporary Red Tent Movement has engaged women in all walks of life around the world. Inspired by the hugely popular International bestseller, The Red Tent by Anita Diamant, it has now been documented in a film that will be featured at the 2013 Beloit International Film Festival. The film will be screened twice in Wilson Theatre on the Beloit College campus, on Thursday, February 14, at 7:30 PM, and on Saturday, February 16, at 4 PM.
“Things We Don’t Talk About: Women’s Stories from the Red Tent” is a 72-minute documentary film. It weaves together healing narratives from inside the Red Tent, traditional red fabric spaces that honor and promote women’s healing and where women gather to rest, renew, and often share deep and powerful stories about their lives. The documentary shines a spotlight on this vital, emergent, women’s movement that is changing the way that women interact and support each other.
Filmmaker Isadora Gabrielle Leidenfrost will attend the Thursday screening and will answer questions following the presentation. There will be a reception at the Red Tent Temple exhibit in the Hales Gallery in Pearsons Hall, next door to Wilson Theatre, following both screenings.
Tickets are $8 plus fees and are now on sale online. Tickets are $9 including fees at the Box Office located at Visit Beloit, 500 Public Ave. and at the door.
The 2013 Beloit International Film Festival is sponsored by the Hendricks Group in association with Beloit College and with funding from Visit Beloit. It is supported and underwritten by many local businesses, organizations and individuals.
