My Name Is Andrea – Thursday, March 2nd

Co-presented with Wicked Queer: LGBT Film Festival with GlobeDocs, the Boston Women’s Film Festival and the Boston Jewish Film Festival

Directed by Pratibha Parmar, documentary, English, USA, 94 minutes, 2022.

My Name is Andrea is a hybrid feature documentary about one of the most controversial figures of the 20th century. Andrea Dworkin offered a revolutionary analysis of male supremacy with a singular urgency and iconoclastic flair. Decades before #MeToo, Dworkin called out the pervasiveness of sexism and rape culture, and the ways it impacts every woman’s daily life. Shaped by the values of justice and equality learned in the civil rights movement, the film focuses on key moments from the life of this fearless fighter who demanded that women be seen as fully human. The film features performances by Ashley Judd, Soko, Amandla Stenberg, Andrea Riseborough, and Christine Lahti, woven in with rare, electrifying archival footage of Dworkin. Discussion with director Pratibha Parmar and producer Shaheen Haq. W, LGBTQ, SJ, D
