March 14, 2012

A documentary film director will be featured during a Women’s History Month event at University of Wisconsin-Stout.

Teresa Konechne wrote, directed and produced “Woven from the Land.” It will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, in the Great Hall of the Memorial Student Center.

Konechne will lead a discussion after the screening, which is free and open to the public.

“Woven From The Land,” released in 2010, examines women, the prairie and culture through the lives of 18 women from South Dakota. It looks at the loss of rural identity and why women are leaving the prairie.
