CORVALLIS - Oregon State University's second annual International Feminist Film will host a series of films on April 16, 23 and 30. The showings are free and open to the public.

Presented by OSU's Women Studies Program, the showings begin at 7 p.m. in OSU's Electrical and Computer Engineering Building Room 101 and include several films each night, including such works as "Girls Like Us," a 60-minute documentary from 1996.

Directed by Jane Alexander and Tina Di Feliciantonio, "Girls Like Us" follows four girls through their four years in a South Philadelphia high school as they deal with ordinary life and make decisions about their future.

Also scheduled is "Honey Moccasin," a 47-minute 1998 Shelley Niro film that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. "Honey Moccasin" is a comedy-thriller set in the fictitious Grand Pine Reserve. Starring Tantoo Cardinal, it explores specific Native A merican experiences within a pop culture context.
