“The Passionate Pursuits of Angela Bowen”
The PASSIONATE PURSUITS of Angela Bowen is a feature length documentary presented by award winning producer/directory, Jennifer Abod.
While there is a trend to examine the intersection of race, class, gender, age and sexuality, we rarely see or hear how these forces manifest in one woman’s life to shape her experience and purpose as she pursues her passions: classical dance, activism and teaching.
For over six decades, Angela Bowen has pursued her three passions: classical dance, activism and teaching, influencing thousands. How has Bowen keep her passions alive, even in the face of poverty and the ugliness of racism, sexism, ageism and homophobia? What kind of strategies has she devised? How have her choices affected her life and the lives of those closest to her?
Passionate Pursuits will introduce audiences to Angela Bowen, and is intended to inspire and challenge people to pursue their passions, but not for themselves alone, a concept that Bowen learned early in her life, passing it along to all who would listen.
