    The United Nations Association Film Festival is recognizing Oscar-nominated director Dorothy Fadiman for a lifetime devoted to film making. Her film Woman by Woman is a story of the struggle for personal freedom faced by women in underdeveloped rural areas of India. The second film, Reclaiming Their Voices chronicles the voiceless members of Native American communities who are slowly becoming politically active. Join her on Monday, October 19th at the Aquarius Theater in Palo Alto for a special evening celebrating her career.
