Matter is a chilling yet humorous, look at our world. The Invisible Hand is

Marthagate.

From Vietnam to El Salvador to the atrocious Clarence Thomas hearing,

Mad Mission:  The MadCat Womenıs International Film Festival seeks to
exhibit provocative and visionary works that are original in their use of
the medium. The festivalıs goal is to emphasize innovative works by women
that challenge the use of sound and image and explore notions of visual
storytelling. 


MadCat has established a strong reputation for programming series of acute
and insightful films audiences would be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
MadCat sets itself apart from other womenıs festivals by curating its
programs thematically as opposed to looking for films solely about womenıs
issues. Thus, with each year comes a completely new set of films and topics.
MadCat allows viewers to look into the vast array of topics women film and
video makers are wrestling with and expand traditional notions of ³womenıs
issues.²
