This March, Documentary Channel (DOC) honors female filmmakers with “Her Take.” A remarkable blend of unforgettable stories told by some of the most exceptional women in documentary film, every night of “Her Take” promises to enlighten, inform and inspire.

The special line-up begins with the US television premiere of filmmaker Gulcin Gilbert’s ”Pink Skies” (March 3, 8 pm ET/PT), an inspiring film that follows a group of courageous women, many of whom are cancer patients and survivors, as they attempt the World Record All-Women’s Skydiving Formation to raise money for breast cancer.

Other US television premieres in the line-up include ”The Price of Sex” (March 10, 8 p.m. ET/PT) an eye-opening investigation into the netherworld of sex trafficking and abuse from director Mimi Chakarova; filmmaker Joan Braderman’s ”The Heretics” (March 17, 8 p.m. ET/PT), the exhilarating inside story of the New York feminist art collective that produced “Heresies: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics;”

“Atomic Mom” (March 24, 8 p.m. ET/PT), director M.T. Silvia’s unique exploration of two women, both mothers, and their very different experiences of the atom bomb; and director Gillian Armstrong’s ”Love, Lust & Lies” ( March 31, 8 p.m. ET/PT), the fifth of Armstrong’s unprecedented series about the lives, hopes and dreams of three lively, working-class girls since they were fourteen-years-old in 1976.
