Description

In 1971, graduate student Gloria Orenstein received a call from Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington that sparked a lifelong journey into art, ecofeminism and shamanism. The short film, Gloria’s Call, uses art, animation and storytelling to celebrate this wild adventure from the cafes of Paris to the mountaintops of Samiland. Now more than 40 years later, award-winning Dr. Gloria Feman Orenstein is a feminist art critic, and pioneer scholar of women in Surrealism and ecofeminism in the arts. Her delightful tale brings alive an often unseen history of women in the arts.

Professor Emeritus Dr. Gloria Feman Orenstein is a feminist art critic, author, pioneer in the field of the women of Surrealism and scholar of ecofeminism in the arts. Orenstein was a founder of the Women's Salon for Literature in New York City and a Professor of Comparative Literature and Gender Studies at the University of Southern California until her retirement.

The film is produced by artists Cheri Gaulke (director), Cheryl Bookout, Anne Gauldin, Sue Maberry and Christine Papalexis with funding from Southern California Women's Caucus for Art. The idea for the film was born during a presentation by renowned scholar Dr. Gloria Feman Orenstein at the SCWCA Surrealist Tea in October 2016.
