Anita: Speaking Truth To Power — Anita Hill At 4:30 Q&A Session at Lincoln Center
March 21, 2014 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm$13
Anita Hill will be in person for a Question and Answer Session at the 4:30pm screening on Friday, March 21 at Lincoln Center in New York City.
On October 11, 1991, a poised young law professor sent shock waves through the nation as she sat before the Senate Judiciary Committee intrepidly testifying to the lewd behavior of a Supreme Court nominee. Twenty years later, Academy Award winner Freida Mock brings us Anita, which crystallizes the sexist power dynamics in the room that day and unravels the impact of that lightning-rod moment on Anita Hill’s life and the broader discussion of gender inequality in America. Contemporary interviews with Hill and her allies, and unsettling archival footage, reveal the way her attempt to report confidentially on Clarence Thomas’s conduct quickly became a perverse and vicious public attack on her character and credibility. Hill’s hearing became a charade of justice. Yet her audacity to speak out detonated a national debate about sexual harassment that revolutionized gender politics.BUY TICKETS
