Woman's Day Dorothea Lange made her name behind the camera, documenting the lean, grim years of the Dust Bowl and the Depression and the cultural upheaval of Japanese internment in stark but moving black-and-white portraits. In local filmmaker Meg Partridge's documentary Dorothea Lange: A Visual Life, Lange appears in front of the camera as she, her sons, and her assistants talk about her work, which Partridge also showcases in the film. The hard work of other women informs These Hands, Flora M'mbugu-Schelling's documentary, in which injured fingers, meals, and roughhousing children punctuate the days of Mozambican women who break rocks in a quarry. The double feature screens at 8 p.m. as part of the "Outdoor Cinema" series at El Rio, 3158 Mission (at Precita), S.F. Admission is $5; call 282-3325.
