Community Cinema, for our part, is bringing independently produced documentary film from US filmmakers. Though these films are on far reaching subjects, the films are always followed by a discussion to bring the topic to a local level. VoV will be providing audio and visual coverage of upcoming Community Cinema Vashon films and speakers. We will be able to promote VoV programs and print their Logo on our publicity. This partnership also provides liability coverage for our events. Thank you Voice of Vashon!

Daisy Bates: The First Lady of Little Rock is the story of a seven-year journey of the filmmaker Sharon La Cruise to discover the life of a forgotten civil rights activist named Daisy Bates. Beautiful, glamorous and articulate, Bates was fearless in her quest for justice, stepping into the spotlight to bring national attention to civil rights issues. Unconventional and egotistical, she became a household name in 1957 when she fought for the right of nine black students to attend the all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Her public support culminated in a constitutional crisis --- pitting a president against a governor and a community against itself.
