We begin our second-annual About Women and Girls Film Festival.
The winners are selected in four categories; student entry, changing attitudes about gender, US women's issues & US women's history.
This week we present the winner in the student entry category: Andie Eisen's 'Good Morning Mrs. Rice.' In this sometimes personal journey, the filmmakers research the peculiar case of Mrs. Rice. Eisen says she was hoping to find "a piece of queer history." Did she succeed or find something else entirely?
