Radical Harmonies

Dee Mosbacher's 2002 documentary video traces the 30-year political, sexual, and cultural evolution of “women's music,” framing it with the feminist and civil rights movements. Although visually and formally plain, the work is enlivened by expressive performances from Holly Near, Ronnie Gilbert, and Sweet Honey in the Rock that showcase the liberating power of the music. The interview subjects offer somewhat quixotic takes on various racial, sexual, and class issues, but the absence of dissident or outside perspectives makes for a narrow ideological field. 92 min.
