Gloria’s Call

A short film by Cheri Gaulke

Made possible through the generous support of the Southern California chapter of WCA.

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. The film is produced by artists Cheri Gaulke (director), Cheryl Bookout, Anne Gauldin, Sue Maberry and Christine Papalexis with funding from the Southern California chapter of WCA. 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.
