SAVING FACE Wins
APA Award!


WMM is thrilled to announce that SAVING FACE has won the APA Film Festival Award: Best Feature Film!

Already a multi-award winning film, SAVING FACE was awarded the Academy Award® for Best Documentary (Short Subject), and two News & Documentary Emmy® Awards - Best Documentary and Outstanding Editing: Documentary and Long Form, as well as broadcast on HBO, proving there is no better film on this subject.

A moving and inspirational film, SAVING FACE profiles the courageous journeys of female acid attack victims in Pakistan and plastic surgeon Dr. Mohammad Jawad, who left a successful London practice and returned to his home country to help these women rebuild their lives. Directed by American filmmaker Daniel Junge and Pakistani director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, SAVING FACE is an intimate look inside Pakistani society, illuminating each woman's personal experience and depicts a Pakistan that is changing - one where ordinary people can stand up and make a difference and where marginalized communities can seek justice.

Special Offer!
Remastered ILLUSIONS

From Julie Dash, director of the critically acclaimed DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST comes this highly anticipated re-release of ILLUSIONS. Now you can enjoy, and teach, this film at the best quality. Perfect for institutions & libraries focused on cinema studies, African American Studies, and film history.

The time is 1942, a year after Pearl Harbor; the place is National Studios, a fictitious Hollywood motion picture studio. Mignon Duprée, a Black woman studio executive who appears to be white and Ester Jeeter, an African American woman who is the singing voice for a white Hollywood star are forced to come to grips with a society that perpetuates false images as status quo. This highly-acclaimed drama by one of the leading African American women directors follows Mignon's dilemma, Ester's struggle and the use of cinema in wartime Hollywood: three illusions in conflict with reality.

Special Offer! purchase both remastered editions of ILLUSIONS and Sally Heckel's classic A JURY OF HER PEERS and get 25% off your entire order. Learn more.
