Yours in Sisterhood Screening and Filmmaker Talkback

When: 6:30-8:30 p.m., Tuesday, September 18, 2018
Where: Nickelodeon Theatre

'From 2015 to 2017, a filmmaking team traveled across the United States speaking with women from all walks of American life. Each interviewee was given a letter from the 1970s, written to the editor of Ms. Magazine, the country’s first feminist magazine, and then was allowed to respond. A striking comparison between 1970s and 2010s feminism and culture emerges, giving a new look at the old slogan, “the personal is political.”'

Directed by Irene Lusztig.

This screening is followed by a talkback with the filmmaker, Irene Lusztig.
