Warrior Woman, the latest work of local filmmaker Julie Reichert, is having its debut screening at The Guild Cinema, January 19, 20 and 21 (Sat., Sun. and Mon.) at 7pm.
Warrior Woman tells a story of healing beyond physical recovery. Alice (played by Karen Young), a teacher, has survived breast cancer, but her marriage and finances are falling apart and she is tormented by vivid, disturbing dreams. Emotionally raw, she feels compelled to protect her student Thuy from an abusive husband. Alice and Thuy drive into the desert, destination unknown, but when Alice’s decrepit car dies, the real journey for both women begins. Alice discovers that emotional healing has a different timetable than physical
