Left on Pearl

Director: Susan Rivo
2016 - Documentary - USA - 55 minutes - Unrated

June 3 @ 6:00 pm

What happens in 1971 when International Women’s Day marchers in Cambridge turn left on Pearl Street and seize and occupy a Harvard-owned building? The ten-day occupation of 888 Memorial Drive by hundreds of women demanding a Women’s Center and low-income housing for the community in which the building stood, embodied within it many of the hopes, triumphs, conflicts and tensions of Second Wave feminism. One of the few such takeovers, this action was transformative for the participants, and led directly to the establishment of the longest continuously operating Women’s Center in the U.S. Winner, Best Documentary at this year’s Boston International Film Festival.
