Chicanas: Nurturers and Warriors at Denver Film Festival

What does it mean to be Chicana? The Denver Office of Storytelling asked activist Nita Gonzales, former City Council President Ramona Martinez, and others including state historian Nicki Gonzales and performer Yolanda Ortega to discuss what it is to be a woman born in this country, with strong Mexican and Indigenous roots and a life dedicated to social justice. This sweeping history spans centuries and is told like never before in “Chicanas: Nurturers and Warriors."

For the first time, an I Am Denver film will premiere at the Denver Film Festival on Saturday, Nov. 6. We'll also host a conversation with a few of the change makers in the film and give audience members an opportunity to make comments or ask questions about what it took to create this unique documentary tribute.

An advanced screening at History Colorado sold out. Tickets for the premiere will be available starting on Oct. 8. Don't wait as seating is limited! Hope to see you there for what's guaranteed to be a celebration.

UPDATE 11/3: Great news! Regis University's Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusive Excellence will host a screening of "Chicanas: Nurturers and Warriors" on Nov. 17. Go here to RSVP.

UPDATE 10/12: The premiere sold out in less than 24 hours. We'll add information on other options to watch the documentary as soon as we have it.
