"Crafty Docs & Swaps," a combination film screening and crafts swap sponsored by the organizers of next month's second annual Baltimore Women's Film Festival, is set for noon Sunday at the Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave. in the old Patterson Theatre.
Heading the film slate will be documentary filmmaker Michael T. Whalen's Fresh Women, which watches six San Francisco women struggle to balance their work and devotion to art with their family lives. Among those profiled are Michelle Wilcove, whose Glove Project uses kitchen gloves to explore the lives of the women to whom they once belonged, and artist Susannah Bettag, whose intentionally provocative paintings are designed to get people talking about sex and sexual relations.
Also screening will be four shorts: Knitting Lesson (director Mary Dalton will be on hand to talk about her film), Grandma Goth and Bella Bella.
The evening will also include a craft supplies swap.
Tickets are $10, $8 for alliance members, students and people bringing crafts supplies to swap. Call 410-276-1651 or go to creativealliance.org for more information.
