The VORTEX will present the premiere screening of Fembeat: Martha P. Cotera. With decades of feminist activism under her belt, 80-year-old Martha P. Cotera reflects on the origins of the Chicana Feminist Movement, La Raza Unida, the trials and errors of second-wave feminism, and the need for today’s feminists to fight for liberation and a higher consciousness in the movement.

The event will include a craft market with Whiskey River Vintage, BBGIRLTX, Fair Weathered Art, and Federico Art & the Little Details; music by Tiarra Girls, Sick/Sea, and gabryella.exe; a screening of Chingonas and Martha P. Cotera; Q&A, raffle, and after-party.

Admission is free, but a suggested donation of $5-$15 can be given at the door. Proceeds will go towards production on future FemBeat episodes. FemBeat is a documentary series that showcases different self-identifying women and non-binary folx in the community. Through an intersectional lens, we strive to provide an uninterrupted platform for storytelling and sisterhood.
