In 1971, graduate student Gloria Orenstein receives a call from Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington that sparks 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.
