Women wrote their letters to Ms. magazine and signed them, as good feminists did, “In sisterhood.” Most were never published. Forty years later, award-winning filmmaker and media archeologist Irene Lusztig traveled the US to the towns where the letters had been written, and asked local women to re-embody the letter-writers’ voices and read aloud these deepest secrets, angriest rants, and sincerest pleas on camera. What happens is intersectional, personal, political—and perfectly stunning. Lusztig’s camera is still, unhurried takes,simply-framed shots, and her locations, unremarkable. This very ordinariness underlines the dialogue she’s created between the past and the future of feminism.
