Women's Film Series


Oct 12, 2019 | 6pm

Our 5th Annual Women's Film Series will showcase movies made by women filmmakers.

After Maria, directed by Nadia Hallgren, is about the aftermath of Hurricane Maria’s catastrophic destruction in 2017. Three Puerto Rican women and their families are caught between worlds as their FEMA housing assistance in New York expires.

With the threat of homelessness on the horizon, After Maria follows as they fight to keep their families together and weather the emotional effects from displacement.

NADIA HALLGREN is an award-winning filmmaker and director of photography from The Bronx, New York. Her vérité cinematography credits include Trouble The Water, Trapped, and Motherland. Hallgren’s episodic series won the Special Jury Prize at SXSW 2018, and she is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The BDC's 5th Annual Women's Film Series was curated by Jon Santiago.
