BARBARA LEE: SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER
San Francisco 2020 (unscreened)
DOC NYC, San Francisco Jewish, Pan African, Cleveland
A portrait of the outspoken US Congresswoman.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
An intimate, inspiring, and timely portrait of Congresswoman Barbara Lee, a true pioneer of American civil rights who was the lone voice in opposition to the authorization of military force after the September 11th attacks. A unique selection of political commentators, activists, politicians, and family members add depth to the story of the highest-ranking Black woman in the US Congress. Uncompromising and conscientious to the core, she is its most steadfast voice for peace, and for economic and racial justice.
