Film Forum to screen "Women of ’69, Unboxed"

April 17, 2014

“Women of ’69, Unboxed,” a documentary film based on experience as a student at Skidmore College, will be presented by the Saratoga Film Forum at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 26. The executive producer of the film, alumna Liz Roman Gallese, will be present to discuss the work. Also on hand will be the Rev. Tom Davis, the College’s chaplain during the era that the film was made.

The film will be screened at the Saratoga Arts Center, 320 Broadway. Refreshments are available. General admission is $7; $5 for Film Forum members and students; some levels of membership include admission.

The film follows a group of women, college classmates, who were both electrified and pummeled by the ‘60s. They look back and then ahead, as they turn 65, ruminate on their heartaches and triumphs, and evaluate the “dowry” they’ll leave for future generations.

Gallese is an award-winning Internet publisher, author and journalist. She recently served as vice president and publisher of Catalyst, a global nonprofit committed to women’s advancement in management and the professions. She is the author of Women Like Us, a look at the first class at the Harvard Business School to be 10 percent female.

Also attending the screening will be Leslie Valk Benton '69, Jane Startz ’69, and Peter Barton, the film’s director and creative lead.
