Women’s Film Festival Presents: Lane 1974

On Thursday, January 10 at 6:30 p.m. the Women’s Freedom Center presents the documentary film Lane 1974 at the Rockingham Library. Based on Clane Hayward’s memoir The Hypocrisy of Disco, LANE 1974 tells a true coming of age survival story. 

It’s 1974. 13-year-old Lane lives on a beautiful Northern California commune until her mother alienates their family from the security and safety of the community. They begin moving from one unlikely situation to another. After a series of dangerous events, Lane must decide how to survive.  

Lane 1974 is the fifth in a series of 6 films by and about women, sponsored by the Women’s Freedom Center running the second Thursday of each month, September 2018 through February 2019 at Rockingham Library.
