Visual effects producer and independent filmmaker Jennifer Lee screened her film in Pakistan about the American women’s liberation movement – at the International Islamic University, National University of Modern Languages in Islamabad, and the Fatimah Jinnah Women’s University in Rawalpindi, last month.
Her documentary film, “Feminist: Stories from Women’s Liberation” premiered in March at the Los Angeles Women’s International Film Festival and won the Best of the Festival Award for Documentary, informed Jennifer through a press release issued Wednesday, May 1..
“It was an honor to be invited. I went with no expectations and was interested to find a robust conversation about feminism in Islamabad. The women were inspired by the early women’s movement in the United States,” Jennifer said.
Jennifer (pictured above, left) has been speaking at colleges and universities about the film and showing video clips to students. One of those universities was the International Islamic University in Islamabad, Pakistan.
Her presentations were initially on Skype. Other colleges include Hampshire College, Santa Monica City College, CSUN and a screening at UCLA is planned for May.
Jennifer Lee is a visual effects expert whose credits include “Beowulf,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Ghost,” and “The Hunt for Red October.”
Her work in independent filmmaking includes the documentary film “Mary Jane Colter: The Desert View’ that premiered at the Santa Barbara Film Festival.
