Join us for the World Premiere of Resisterhood! If ever there was a time for an uplifting film about standing up for a more just and inclusive America, it is now. Resisterhood is a documentary about the power of women, hope and resistance in modern American politics. Beginning at the 2017 Women’s March in Washington, DC, the film follows six diverse Americans as they fight for social justice on the streets and in the halls of power. Over the course of two years, experience the reality of Trump’s America through their eyes. And through their actions, witness the strength and courage of ordinary Americans during this extraordinary time. Closed captioning and Spanish subtitles available.
Resisterhood’s mission is to fire up the resistance and get people out to VOTE. Find out how you can use the film to support your work at www.ResisterhoodDoc.com.
