Over nine years together, they produced several thousand videotapes, installations and multimedia events, and trained hundreds of people to communicate fluently in the "new" medium of video, including several workshops at Visual Studies Workshop. Using footage from these early videotapes, this documentary creates a fascinating portrait of a unique group of activists engaged in media literacy in an era of intense social and cultural change.

Anne-Marie Saheb stars as Bess Lavigne, a former curling prodigy who works part time doing cleaning in a women's shelter and at a local curling club. Her solitary existence is disrupted by intermittent panic attacks… but she's not the only one with problems. When Bess is asked to give curling lessons to the four troubled women from the shelter, they all learn to overcome their differences and help one another, and ultimately they discover a fierce bond on and off the ice. Panel style discussion about details of producing and creating her film to follow as well as audience Q&A. This is an excellent opportunity for local filmmakers to get incite into a reasonable sized successful project in the ultra-low/micro budget category many of our members work in.

Their stories take dramatic turns, leading one of the protagonists to Afghanistan where she learns about a horrendous incident. But her journey also gives hope for peace and redemption.
