What You Should Watch at the Athena Film Festival

Let’s be honest, the Athena Film Festival movie list can start to look a little overwhelming… especially for us here at Barnard. Here is a chart by movie topic to help you quickly pick that one movie that best fits your interests (besides empowering women, duh).
