A Place of Rage is an exhuberant award winning documentary by filmmaker Pratibha Parmar. It is a celebration of the contributions and achievements of prominent African American women and includes interviews with Angela Davis, June Jordan and Alice Walker. Within the context of civil rights, black power, lesbian and gay rights and the feminist movement, the trio reassess how women like Rosa Parks and Fannie Lou Hamer revolutionised American society and the world generally. A PLACE OF RAGE made its debut in 1991 yet it's content is still one of the richest and most cherished with candid interviews from Angela Davis, Alice Walker and powerful poetry from June Jordan.
"This lyrical film begins the much needed exploration of the Afro-American women who sustained and inspired the Civil Rights Movement of the 60's. By shining an intimate light on some of our best known artists / activists Parmar eloquently reveals the power and poetry of the hidden faces. Her film is a visual embrace of who black women really are . " Jewelle Gomez
