Anne Braden : southern patriot (1924-2006)

Anne BradenLoading Anne Braden: Southern Patriot is a first person documentary about the extraordinary life of this American civil rights leader. Braden was hailed by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in his 1963 letter from Birmingham Jail as a white southerner whose rejection of her segregationist upbringing was "eloquent and prophetic." Ostracized as a "red" in the 1950s, she fought for an inclusive movement community and mentored three generations of social justice advocates. Braden's story explores not only the dangers of racism and political repression but also the power of a woman's life spent in commitment to social justice.

Harry Clarke : darkness in light

Harry ClarkeLoading Harry Clarke, one of Ireland's greatest and most neglected artists, created an often bizarre world in stained glass and book illustration. His work is a heady mix of the beautiful and the grotesque, the ethereal and the demonic. Born into the stained glass profession, Clarke displayed his talents at an early age, and in his short life, he created some dazzling works. As a result, he was in demand from churches all over Ireland, Scotland, and England, as well as Australia and the United States. But Clark s artwork took a dark turn and many of his images were deemed obscene. As his imagination progressively leaned to the grotesque, his decadent work met with resistance. In this revealing film, Clarke's tragic story represents a fascinating collision of Church, State and art and one man [...]
