Victory to Change is a documentary by Baltimore-based filmmaker Gregory Walsh. It follows two remarkable female Indian activists as they fight for the most marginalized members of society.  Community Supported Film, an organization that trains storytellers from developing countries as filmmakers, presents three shorts by Afghans.  Art of Solidarity, MICA in Nicaragua, presents The Mothers of Martyrs, a documentary that revisits the Nicaraguan Revolution 30 years later by interviewing mothers who survived. They reflect on the tragedies of war with the goal of passing on their stories to a new generation and advocating for world peace.

Panel discussion will follow, with Elizabeth Alex from Casa Maryland, Aida Pinto-Baquero from Patterson Park Public Charter School’s Mis Raices, Sawsan Al-Sayyab of International Rescue Committee, and members of the Baltimore Women’s Forum – a monthly dialogue group of refugee women, including Mary Kinyoli of Kenya, and Nidaa Haseeb of Iraq.

Over the next weeks they would be beaten at Taliban checkpoints, endure crushing crowds and be threatened and sworn at by soldiers from around the world.
