C.A. Griffith and H.L.T. Quan – Co-Directors of Mountains That Take Wing

This week on TALK! with AUDREY: C. A. GRIFFITH and H.L.T. Quan (left to right) are seven people—director, producer, researcher, writer, cinematographer, soundperson and editor—all in two award-winning, women filmmakers. Through QUAD Productions, they create social justice films and train grassroots organizations and media activists. As professors, they train and inspire young scholars and artists.

MOUNTAINS THAT TAKE WING is an award winning, inspiring, historically rich and unique documentary featuring conversations between two amazing women with a profound passion for justice. Angela Davis, an internationally renowned scholar-activist and Yuri Kochiyama, a revered, 88 year old community organizer and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, embody personal and political experiences of women doing social justice work. Illustrated with rare footage of extraordinary speeches and events from the late 1800’s to the 1960’s through today, the film explores the critical role women, youth and crosscultural, crossracial alliances played in some the 20th Century’s most important social movements
