New Documentary Film on Extraordinary Women of the Dominican Republic

MUJERES-EXTRAORDINARIAS-300x180

The Dominican Telecom Institute (Indotel) announced the premier of the documentary Mujeres Extraordinarias (mujeres en el tiempo, mujeres sin tiempo) [Extraordinary Women, Women in Time, Women without Time], which will be screened at 8:00pm on August 20, 2009, at the National Theater.

The film, written and directed by Yildalina Tatem Brach, represents the trajectories of Mary Pérez de Marranzini, Dedé Mirabal, Josefina Padilla, Tomasina Cabral, Ivelisse Prats, and Gladys Gutiérrez. Indotel president José Rafael Vargas says, “This documentary narrates the history of six extraordinary women of the Dominican Republic [. . .] interlacing the data in their lives and an attempt to construct the reality of their stories and their eagerness to become independent people, women of solidarity, and committed mothers. They are women who have served as examples in Dominican society.”

Tatem Brach explains that “these women deserve to have their stories known because new generations should know that it is possible to build from the basis of dignity, decorum, and a sense of work linked to a collective wellbeing, to show that it is possible to achieve, and to demonstrate that women are part of history.”
