I was wondering if you could help me. While I was at college, I saw a documentary about 3 white women who were active in the Civil Rights movement. As a result of their "activities," they were arrested. The film dealt with the institutionalized state torture of these women, who were deprived of sleep, social interaction, privacy, etc. At the end of the film, they were being held in a facility somewhere in Florida. I haven't given you much to go on, but if you could possibly send me a list of films which deal with state torture of Americans in America, I would be very grateful. Thank you in advance for your help. Sheron

Per your note to Feminist.com, unfortunately, I don't know what film you are referencing. There are a couple of places that I suggest you contact for this and/or similiar films:

1.) Women Make Movies (based in NYC.)
2.) The MacAuthur Foundation and the Ford Foundation--both fund progressive documentary film work and, therefore, might be able to lead you to some of these films.
3.) Third Wave, a national organization for young feminists, has a resource guide--videos is a subcategory. If you send me your mailing address--I can send it to you.

There is also something in New York City called the film archives. They may have a breakdown on subjects.
