'Tough Broads' take the screen this weekend at the Lower Eastside Girls Club
In case you haven't seen this...the Lower Eastside Girls Club is hosting its first Tough Broads Film Festival this weekend.
The festival started last night and continues today and tomorrow with "films featuring feminist icons — women of a ‘certain age’ who have led full lives starting with early forays into activism which only deepened over time."
Today's screenings: "The Rest I Make Up," "Dolores" and "BadddDDD Sonia Sanchez."
Sunday's screening: "What Happened Miss Simone?" and "Chavela."
Each screening opens with a documentary short, "Meet My Grandmother," produced by a Girls Club member.

The screenings are FREE and at the Lower Eastside Girls Club, 402 E. Eighth St. at Avenue D.
