Sept 10 on FM: Creating our own culture! DIY, Zines & film pioneers

Hosted by Lynn Harris Ballen, Ariana Manov & Abeni Moreno.  With contributors Sirena Pellarolo & Danielle Roderick : We’re talking about women and grrrls creating culture for themselves this week!
First we cover the SoCal scene & hear all about DIY: We’re Doin’ It” – a short documentary about women in the DIY (do-it-yourself) culture who organize and create for their communities.  The film features interviews with artists, musicians, zinesters, and a filmmaker. Featuring original music by The Bellhaunts and Ask Alice. We’re joined live in studio by producers/directors Maria A. Yanez, Annie Knight, and Rhianne Bergado.

Then… Alice Guy-Blache’ had so many firsts it can make your head spin. The first director to have an all African-American cast, the first woman to direct, to own a studio, to work on synchronized sound. She revolutionized the industry, and was later forgotten by it.  FemMag Contributor Danielle Roderick talks to Director Pamela Green about Alice as the subject of her documentary “Be Natural,” and tell us what Alice would say about Hollywood today.*

And remember 90’s zine culture? FemMag Contributor Dr. Sirena Pellarolo, talks with Pati García, aka Chula Doula, on her role as wellness co-coordinator for the 2013 Race Riot Tour, an effort to make “zines by people of color easy to find, distribute and share.” After last year’s experience, organizers at the People of Color Zine Project decided to include different modalities of self-care for tour participants, marking a necessary new trend among activists of color who usually work towards the liberation of their communities at the expense of their own well-being.
