1:00 PM

"Seneca Falls" breathes life and relevance into a revolutionary act barely mentioned in history books: America's first women's rights convention, held in Seneca Falls, NY in 1848. This one-hour documentary follows WOWER Power, a multi-cultural teen theater troupe on the road from San Francisco to Seneca Falls to perform an original play at the 150th anniversary celebration of the convention. Along the way, the nine teenage girls meet historians and elected officials including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Following the film, join director Louise Vance, performer Ruth Mankin and film critic Eileen Newman for a panel discussion. Presented by UR's Susan B. Anthony Center for Women's Leadership and WXXI. Admission $5 (includes Gallery admission); free to Gallery members. More about the film
