Film description

What might be revealed in the process of inviting strangers to act out and respond to 1970s feminism forty years later? Between 2015 and 2017, hundreds of strangers in communities all over the US were invited to read aloud and respond to letters from the 70s sent to the editor of “Ms. Magazine” – the first mainstream feminist magazine in the US. The intimate, provocative, and sometimes heartbreaking conversations that emerge from these spontaneous performances make us think critically about the past, present, and future of feminism. ”Yours in Sisterhood” is a project about time travel, embodied listening, empathy, public discourse, and the lost art of letter writing.

Special thanks to Stowarzyszenie Nowe Horyzonty for their support.
