Queen of the Andes at Women Making Waves

While there’s no shortage of reasons to attend this year’s edition of the annual event celebrating women in filmmaking (networking and fascinating panel discussions abound), one of the top items on our calendar is this screening: The debut feature by filmmaker Jillian Acreman, it tells the story of a near-future where the government is sending our brightest young minds to colonize Mars. A Q&A with Acreman follows the online screening.
Sat Mar 27, 7pm, for tickets and details.
