Library Grows ‘Family Of Woman’ Collection

Family of Woman Film Festival sponsor Leslie Bradshaw, in the middle, and festival founder Peggy Goldwyn, on right, presents copies of all films shown at this year’s festival to Colleen Daley, on left, executive director of The Community Library in Ketchum. The feature-length documentaries "Climate Refugees," "Pink Saris" from India, "Divorce Iranian Style" and "Voices Unveiled" from Turkey will be available at the library. In addition, Bradshaw donated Academy Award-nominated "Sun Come Up" and "Sisters on the Planet," two short documentary films that screened at the festival. Also donated to the library is the film "No Woman, No Cry," made by Christy Turlington, which was presented in January for a pre-event to the festival. Also included in the donation is a BBC film series, "Women on the Frontline: Nepal, Turkey and Colombia," which was shown in conjunction with last year's festival. The total of 22 films from the Family of Woman Film festival is now available to the public at the library. All deal with the status of women in the developing world. The film festival has been sponsored each year by Americans for UNFPA to bring attention to the work of the United Nations Population Fund. UNFPA provides women’s health care and promotes the rights of women in more than 150 countries.
