Sun & Stars Intl'l Film Festival© to Present BELLA! on 104th Birthday of Bella Abzug

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - June 5, 2024 - PRLog -- (West Palm Beach FL – June 3, 2024) The Donald M. Ephraim Sun & Stars International Film Festival© (SASIFF) is hosting a special summer screening of BELLA!, an award-winning documentary about trailblazing Congresswoman Bella Abzug, on the 104th anniversary of her birth: July 24 at 4 pm at Cinemark Boynton Beach 14.

"Part of our mission is to bring thought-provoking films to Palm Beach," said SASIFF Founder Donald M. Ephraim. "I can only imagine what a firebrand like Bella Abzug would make of this election year and our hope is that this special summer screening sparks audience interest on both sides of the political aisle.

The 2022 winner of the Library of Congress/Ken Burns Prize for Film, BELLA! celebrates the fiery feminist who entered Congress in 1970 ready for a fight. With her trademark hat and Bronx swagger, Bella Abzug upended the Washington patriarchy, battling for women's equality, civil rights, and LGBTQ+ protections. Using never-before-seen home movies, audio diaries and a vast trove of newly discovered news footage, this gripping documentary features new interviews with Barbra Streisand, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Gloria Steinem, Lily Tomlin, Maxine Waters, Shirley MacLaine, Phil Donahue, Marlo Thomas, Charlie Rangel, Scott Stringer, and David Dinkins.

Jeff L. Lieberman, the writer-director of BELLA!, will attend the special screening and participate in a Q&A with the audience.

Ken Burns, America's most celebrated documentary filmmaker, has praised BELLA! as "one of the most energetic and wonderful films," while The New York Times says it "illustrates the merciless challenges of electoral endurance event for the fiercest fighter."
