All this month the Chicago Public Library will celebrate Women's History Month with free screenings of documentaries about notable women and women's issues. The series began this past Saturday at the Harold Washington Library Center with Patti Smith: Dream of Life (it plays again at the Lincoln Belmont Library on March 26) and continues today at the Greater Grand Crossing Library with The Principal Story, a 2009 PBS documentary about a dedicated public school principal. Notable upcoming screenings include Girl Model, a sobering documentary about the modeling industry that played at last year's Chicago Underground Film Festival, playing tomorrow night at the Edgebrook Library; In the Family, a 2007 portrait (coproduced by Kartemquin Films) of a Chicago woman being treated for breast cancer, screening on March 20 at the Roosevelt Branch Library and on March 23 at the West Belmont Library; and I'm Carolyn Parker, the Good, the Mad, and the Beautiful, Jonathan Demme's recent documentary about a New Orleans matriarch involved with the rebuilding of the Ninth Ward, screening at the Bezazian Library on March 30. You can find a complete schedule at the Chicago Public Library website.
