Mountains that Take Wing, A Conversation on Life, Struggles, and Liberation with Angela Davis and Yuri Kochiyama features conversations that span 13 years between two formidable women whose lives and political work remain at the epicenter of the most important civil rights struggles in the U.S. The film was co-directed by C.A. Griffith and H.L.T. Quan.

Through the intimacy and depth of conversations, we learn about Davis, an internationally renowned scholar-activist and 88-year-old Kochiyama, a revered grassroots community activist and 2005 Nobel Peace Prize nominee's shared experiences as political prisoners and their profound passion for justice. On subjects ranging from the vital but largely erased role of women in social movements of the 20th century, community empowerment, to the prison industrial complex, war and the cultural arts, Davis' and Kochiyama's comments offer critical lessons for understanding our nation's most important social movements and tremendous hope for its youth and the future. ( Ocotillo May 2010 )

Illustrated with rarely-seen photographs and footage of extraordinary speeches and events from the early 1900s to the '60s and through the present, the topics of this rich conversation range from critical, but often forgotten role of women in 20th century social movements to the importance of cross-cultural/cross-racial alliances; from America's WWII internment camps to Japan's "Comfort Women"; from Malcolm X to the prison industrial complex; and from war to cultural arts. Davis and Kochiyama's comments offer critical lessons for understanding our nation's most important social movements while providing tremendous hope for its youth and the future.

This award-winning film was completed through a post-production residency award at the Wexner Center for the Arts, Quan and Griffith co-edited the film with Paul Hill.

Mountains that Take Wing will screen Feb. 10 at 8 p.m. at Chicago Filmmakers and the firehouse on Ridge, 5720 N. Ridge. The entrance is on Hollywood. Social hour begins at 7 p.m. and there be a Skype chat with filmmaker C.A. Griffith before the film.
