Documentary on women's peace movement at London festival
Comment Email Print
 First-time film maker Donna Baillie spoke on BBC Radio Four's Woman's Hour programme yesterday, about her documentary on the Women in Black peace organisation. Now a worldwide movement of over 150 groups, including many Christians and Moslems, the all-women network started with vigils in 1988 in Israel against the Occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. Donna Baillie's film follows the London group, largely made up of middle-aged women who the press have affectionately dubbed 'Hell's Grannies', to the West Bank where they helped form a human shield around Palestinian civilians. Baillie's film is being shown as part of the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival, which opens today and runs to 20 March. For more information about the festival visit:
