Acclaimed local filmmaker to speak at LUNAFEST

Katie Curran, 33, has worked as assistant producer, production assistant and camera for documentaries from PBS, NOVA and Power Paths. She interned for the Emmy award-winning Investigative Team at ABC News in Chicago and has worked as a freelance writer for print, National Public Radio and Lines Across the Sand, a documentary about author Edward Abbey and the environmentalist warriors of the Monkey Wrench Gang. Determined, but with a small budget, Curran backpacked across the world for the past five years to collect footage for her first film and directorial debut, "Greening the Revolution". This feature-length documentary examines the globalization of the food supply, focusing on the grassroots response of communities in India, Kenya, Zambia, Cuba, Mexico, Brazil, Haiti and the United States. The rough cut Curran's film has played at festivals in Milan, New York and Oaxaca, Mexico where Curran won 'Best Female Filmmaker'. The final cut of "Greening the Revolution" will premiere in 2011.

Katie will join Girls on the Run  of N. AZ Executive Director, Stephanie Ludwig in speaking before the evening films on Saturday, May 14th.

Pure Prevention Campaign: Get Out!

Get Outside
Exercise can help protect against breast cancer and many other negative health outcomes. Physical activity reduces your exposures to certain ovarian hormones. Exercise with weights helps build muscle and reduce body fat, lowering your level of circulating estrogen. Lower levels of ovarian hormones and circulating estrogen both decrease your breast cancer risk.  Through annual outdoor physical challenges, the Breast Cancer Fund enables breast cancer survivors and supporters to find strength through adversity and make strides to eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer.

LUNAFEST was established in 2000 by LUNA, the makers of the Whole Nutrition Bar for Women, to simultaneously promote women filmmakers, raise awareness for women’s issues, and support worthy women’s nonprofit organizations. LUNAFEST events take place between October and April of each year in hundreds of venues throughout the U.S. and Canada. Inspiring women through the art of film and community fundraising, LUNAFEST is a program that expands horizons and increases awareness.

This year’s festival features 10 short films that tell different stories of women, from Jessica Yu's myth-busting documentary about the mysteries of childbirth (The Kinda Sutra) to Courtney Cox's tale of a single woman in her early 40s who realizes she doesn't need a husband or boyfriend for happiness (The Monday Before Thanksgiving). The program includes art films, quirky animation and touching documentaries which are directed by filmmakers from Australia, New York, Bulgaria and Los Angeles, and share inspiring stories, from aging and motherhood, to body image and love.
