Poet, activist, and journalist Sandra Hochman and an all-female crew documented and participated in the radical interventions of the Women’s Movement at the 1972 Democratic National Convention. These activists and filmmakers challenged media anchors, including Walter Cronkite, on the limited coverage of African-American Democratic Presidential candidate Shirley Chisholm. This rarely screened, recently restored film is a celebration of female filmmaking and feminist political action and includes appearances by Gloria Steinem, Liz Renay, Betty Friedan, Flo Kennedy, Coretta Scott King, Shirley MacLaine, and many others.
