UK Premiere

Radical feminist, street fighter, practical dreamer. This lyrical documentary, shot in super 8, recounts Judy Rebick’s pivotal role in securing women’s rights over their own bodies in Canada. She lays out the key tenets of second-wave feminism, even as a family time bomb threatens her existence. The film closes with a harrowingly personal account of a divided self and a startling embrace of mental illness as creativity.

Mike Hoolboom, a filmmaker who has created a rich and singular filmography, builds a portrait of a friend, a letter of love and admiration, and a sensitive immersion into a unique life.
