The feature film ANITA by Academy Award® winning filmmaker Freida Mock is hitting theaters across the country starting March 21, and WAM! needs you to join us.
AGAINST A BACKDROP OF SEX, POLITICS AND RACE, ANITA HILL STOOD BEFORE A NATION AND DARED TO SPEAK THE TRUTH – KICKING THE DOOR WIDE OPEN ON THE ISSUES OF GENDER EQUALITY AND SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE UNITED STATES.
THIS IS HER STORY…
Just past the 22 year anniversary, Freida Mock revisits one of the most controversial watershed events of the past century, the Anita Hill – Clarence Thomas hearings, the weekend of shocking television that made Anita Hill a household name and smashed the door open on the issues of sexual harassment and gender equality.
WAM! is turning out in force to give ANITA the big opening weekends it deserves. The more of us see the film when it opens, the more theaters the film will play in and the more weeks it will play across the U.S. and beyond. Even better: we’ll be sending a message to Hollywood that woman-helmed films about women are a great investment.
Tickets will be on sale soon for opening weekends in the cities below — including a special WAM! price on WAM! screenings including Q&As and other social opportunities after the film. To be notified as soon as WAM! sales begin, just click here to RSVP.
To volunteer to help drive turnout in your city below, or if you want to bring the film to a city not listed below, email us ASAP and we’ll get to work together!
