sisterhoodNORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE  Irene Lusztig's YOURS IN SISTERHOOD is a performative, participatory documentary inspired by the breadth and complexity of letters that were sent in the 1970s to the editor of Ms.- America's first mainstream feminist magazine. The film documents hundreds of strangers from around the U.S. who were invited to read aloud and respond to these letters written by women, men and children from diverse backgrounds. The intimate, provocative, and sometimes heartbreaking conversations that emerge from these performances invite viewers to think about the past, present, and future of feminism. 

 

"Irene Lusztig's documentary set-up succeeds in bringing a wealth of experiences from an earlier generation of the feminist movement into a complex dialogue with the present."
- Berlinale

INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE 
Harriet Hirshorn's NOTHING WITHOUT US tells the inspiring story of the vital role that women have played - and continue to play - in the global fight against HIV/AIDS. From beauty parlors in Baton Rouge to the first HIV clinic in Burundi, this film looks boldly at the dynamics that keep women around the world at high-risk for HIV, while introducing the remarkable women who have the answers to ending this 30-year old pandemic. As the history of AIDS activism is being written, women, particularly women of color, are being written out of it. This documentary restores women's crucial role in the history and present-day activism around HIV as well as bolsters the work of women everywhere still fighting for their lives.

 

"A must-see film for anyone interested in understanding what it means for women to be healthy." - Rewire
