The National Geographic mini-series depicts the true story of an ambush that killed eight Americans and hundreds of Iraqis.

A new film by an area filmmaker is guaranteed to raise some folks' hackles. That filmmaker is Shannon Ivey, and she has a bone to pick with many Christians.

 

 

"We have to get out of the four walls of the church and get out in the streets, where Jesus would've been, and we have to put our money where our mouth is," she said.

San Antonio's Feminist Film Festival kicks off October 10. Joyce Townsend produces the festival, and this year she's starting with a change that will highlight the newest filmmakers.

"We're going to kick it off with a series of short films from some students at Brackenridge High School.   They're very short films. They're almost PSAs by nature," Townsend explains.

After that they'll show a Sundance blockbuster, Woman On Fire.
