Feminist Films Air Minority Concerns

by Randi Spires

The Toronto Star, Dec. 8, 1989

The second installment of the Toronto Independent Artists' Series, entitled Feminist Re-Visions, features two videos- Premika Ratnam and Ali Kazimi's Voice of Our Own, and Marusia Bociurkiw's Night Visions. Night Visions looks at the political differences and similarities between native women, a visible minority, and lesbian women, an invisible minority. Voice of Our Own documents the formation of the National Organization of Immigrant and Visible Minority Women in Winnipeg in 1986.

Blood Risk by FaBa productions re-examines sexuality and bonding that all of us, paticularly gay men, must make in the face of AIDS.
