My Name is Andrea, which will be screened on International Women's Day, 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.
"A film like no other — lyrical and journalistic, placed in time and also timeless. And now that Andrea Dworkin's words are turning out to predict headlines, from Times Up! to the gender of terrorism, this film will illuminate what's going on and help us know what to do." – Gloria Steinem
