Mon 3 March 2008 // 20:00

(Mon 3rd / 8.30pm / £2/£3 but nobody refused entry for a lack of funds)
March sees both International Women's Day and Women's History Month
and in celebration of this Bristol Indymedia Film Night will be
screening the acclaimed documentary 'Into the Fire' which looks at
the role of women from all over the world who joined struggle
against fascism in prelude to World War II; the Spanish Civil War.

Witness the heights of heroism through the American women who, in
defiance of the U.S. government, joined the fight against the
Fascists in Spain's 1936 civil war. Sixteen nurses, writers, and
journalists share their stories of courage and commitment to a just
cause. In the words of one film critic, "their heroism leaves
Hemingway's romantic notions of this war in the dust."
