A timely reevaluation of the life and legacy of writer and activist Andrea Dworkin, Parmar’s innovative new documentary counteracts the misinformation and vitriol that obscured Dworkin’s message during her lifetime. “Shaped by the values of justice and equality learnt from the civil rights movement as a young girl, Dworkin observed the ways that male chauvinism and discrimination impact every woman’s daily experience and dared to demand that women be seen as equals. . . . Parmar fuses rare archival footage with startling performances by Ashley Judd, Soko, Amandla Stenberg, Andrea Riseborough and Christine Lahti, creating a hybrid documentary that traces pivotal moments in the life of a fearless fighter” (Lucy Mukerjee, Tribeca Film Festival).
