Woven from the Land, image from Walker Art CenterThe Walker Art Center’s seventeenth International Women with Vision Film Festival includes four documentaries by filmmakers from Minnesota.  MN Docs Program 1 on March 20 screens Ida’s Story and Pride of Lions; MN Docs Program 2 on March 27 features Woven from the Land and Fritz: The Walter Mondale Story.

Lydia Howell writes about these four films in TC Planet.

If you are inspired by the stories of the women in Woven from the Land and Ida’s Story, you might also enjoy Honor the Grandmothers: Dakota and Lakota Women Tell Their Stories, Calling this Place Home: Women on the Wisconsin Frontier, and ”And Prairie Dogs Weren’t Kosher” : Jewish Women in the Upper Midwest since 1855.
