Co-directed by C.A. Griffith & H.L.T. Quan (Distributed by Women Make Movies http://www.wmm.com), MOUNTAINS THAT TAKE WING features conversations that span 13 years between two formidable women whose lives and political work remain at the epicenter of the most important civil rights struggles in the US. Through the intimacy and depth of conversations, we learn about Davis, an internationally renowned scholar-activist and 88-year-old Kochiyama, a revered grassroots community activist and 2005 Nobel Peace Prize nominee's shared experiences as political prisoners and their profound passion for justice. On subjects ranging from the vital but largely erased role of women in social movements of the 20th century, community empowerment, to the prison industrial complex, war and the cultural arts, Davis' and Kochiyama's comments offer critical lessons for understanding our nation's most important social movements and tremendous hope for its youth and the future. This award-winning film was completed through a post-production residency award at the Wexner Center for the Arts, Quan and Griffith co-edited the film with Paul Hill. 97 MINS, QUAD PRODUCTIONS 2009.
