Scholar Gloria Orenstein’s life is forever changed through her wild journey into friendships with the women artists of Surrealism. As she witnesses the visionary art and personal struggles of Leonora Carrington, Jane Graverol, Leonor Fini and Méret Oppenheim, she discovers her calling as a pioneer scholar of Surrealism and ecofeminism. Gloria’s Call takes viewers from the cafés of Paris to the mountaintops of Samil and through richly layered art, animation and personal storytelling. This delightful film reveals an often unseen history of women in the arts.
