CASCADIA Presents “Piedra Libre”

Six women perform ancestral dances. They move, weaving recollections of a dictatorship that is still folded into their biographies, their memory, and their bodies. CASCADIA International Women’s Film Festival, along with Kuntz & Company, will screen the film “Piedra Libre” online for two weekends, Thursday through Sunday, Jan. 19-22 and Thursday through Sunday, Jan. 26-29. Tickets are $10 and are available here. Ticket buyers will have four days after purchase to view the film.
