Meanwhile, in Peru

Also new on the channels, Firme Y Feliz: Peruvian Women in Social Justice Movements is a new film by Philadelphia area filmmaker Jasmine Rivera. Rivera documents three Peruvian women and their experiences within resistance and social justice movements. The film examines the historical context of Peru, the victories of these movements, what role women played, why they chose to become politically active and how the experience shaped their world perspective.

This week, the film will broadcast on Channel 96: Wednesday Nov. 16 at 9m, Friday Nov. 18 at 9pm, and Sunday Nov. 20 at 11:05pm.
