Highlights for Women & Film April 8 & 9 

WAFDon’t miss this! Gael Towey, in 1990, helped launch Martha Stewart Living magazine. She designed the inaugural issue, initiating the magazine’s distinct and iconic visual style. As creative director, she also helped launch five more magazine titles and several product lines reflecting the changing lifestyles of American women.

Today she travels the world as a storyteller and filmmaker. Her Portraits in Creativity, a series of short-form documentaries, delights in the seduction of creative work. She will attend Women & Film with her Portrait of Sheila Berger, Sat., April 8, 10:15 am at the Rose Theatre. Ms. Berger, a New York painter and sculptor, examining nurturing and the fragility of nature, will also attend.

Join editor Eric Firth to learn how filmmaker and editor capture this “firefly” on the screen. Masterful editing and animation guides this film from beginning to end. See it April 8, Sat., 1:15 pm., Rose Theatre.
