Local "Madame Presidenta" Documentary Airs Tomorrow

Posted By on Fri, Mar 28, 2014 at 3:19 PM

In case you missed its premiere screening a couple weeks back, at the Carnegie Museum of Art, Heather Arnet's politically themed documentary Madame Presidenta: Why Not U.S.? airs tomorrow night on WQED.

The one-hour documentary explores how women are emerging as political leaders around the world, espeically in Brazil, where Dilma Rousseff is president. Arnet interviews women from different regions and backgrounds in Brazil to trace the changes there.

There is a trailer here.

The film is a collaboration between Arnet's Women and Girls Foundation and ELAS, the Women's Social Investment Fund of Brazil.

Madame Presidente screens at 10 p.m. as part of WQED's Filmmakers Corner series.
