NYSCA sponsored film, “The Liberation of Helene Aylon” at the
Iowa City International Documentary Film Festival.
“The Liberation of Helène Aylon” is an intimate film portrait that explores how a woman raised in an Orthodox community became a radical feminist conceptual artist, commandeering a monumental cross-country trip to “rescue” nuclear contaminated earth.
