Passionate Politics: The Life and Work of Charlotte Bunch A Joyce Warshow Film
Produced & Directed by Tami Gold
PASSIONATE POLITICS brings Charlotte's story to life, from idealistic young civil rights organizer to lesbian activist, to internationally-recognized leader of a campaign to put women's rights, front and center, on the global human rights agenda. Charlotte has been both a product and creator of her times: every chapter in her life is a chapter in the story of modern feminist activism, from its roots in the 1960's struggles for social justice to international campaigns against gender-based violence today.

"Inspirational! This film explores the history of feminism through the political career of an activist from New Mexico and powerfully documents Charlotte’s lifelong dedication to liberation and social justice. Creatively using archival footage the film shows Charlotte grow into a leading activist and intellectual, embraced and valued by women across the globe."

"PASSIONATE POLITICS beautifully intertwines Charlotte Bunch's personal and public persona, exemplifying the leadership that lesbians have always played within many movements including the women's, sexual and human rights movements. In a powerful and poetic way, PASSIONATE POLITICS captures the wholeness of Charlotte Bunch and erases the invisibility of lesbian leadership in feminist and social justice work."
