About WMM:
Since our beginnings in 1972, WMM has grown from a feminist filmmakers' collective into an industry-leading nonprofit media arts organization and distributor. For 40 years, WMM has transformed the landscape of filmmaking for women directors and producers, bringing the issues facing women around the world to screens everywhere. Now, with more than 550 films in our catalog, including Academy®, Emmy®, Peabody and Sundance nominees and award winners, WMM is the largest distributor of films by independent women directors in the world. In the last five years, dozens of WMM films have been broadcast on PBS, HBO and the Sundance Channel, among others

ABUELAS: Grandmothers on a Mission by award-winning director Noemi Weis is now available from Women Make Movies! 

In 1985, the Academy Award® nominated film LAS MADRES: THE MOTHERS OF PLAZA DE MAYO profiled the Argentinian mothers' movement to demand to know the fate of 30,000 "disappeared" sons and daughters. Now three decades later, Argentina's courageous Grandmothers, or "Abuelas," have been searching for their grandchildren: the children of their sons and daughters who disappeared during Argentina's "Dirty War." Read more and view the trailer.

Interested in Latin American Studies? This Year, WMM Has Added Four New Latin American Titles!

From immigration to civil wars to politics, women in Latin and Central America continue to fight for both gender equality and their own survival. Glimpse into the lives of these brave and determined individuals with this growing collection of compelling films.

"An impressive testimony of dictatorships' impact on families and on the strength of women's hope through decades."

"... an essential addition to the films about Central America in the 1980s." 
-Pamela Yates, Director of GRANITO: How to Nail a Dictator



"...paints a dispiriting picture of life in a Brazilian slum and offers no cheap expression of hope beyond the fighting spirit found, however intermittently, in the community itself."
-Hollywood Reporter

"[S]hed[s] light on the thousands of kidnappings, sexual abuse, human trafficking, and torture suffered by migrants who travel across Mexico each year..." -UCLA International Institute
