MY NAME IS ANDREA
Appearances: ASHLEY JUDD, SOKO, AMANDLA STENBERG, ANDREA RISEBOROUGH, ALLEN LEECH, CHRISTINE LAHTI
A rousing portrait of feminist writer Andrea Dworkin, one of the most controversial and misunderstood figures of the 20th century, who fought passionately for justice and equality for women.
“This is a film like no other — lyrical and journalistic, placed in time and also timeless. And now that Andrea Dworkin’s words are turning out to predict headlines, from Times Up! to the gender of terrorism, this film will illuminate what’s going on and help us know what to do.”
— Gloria Steinem
“I love the film. It is brilliant and searing and timely as hell. It is original and deep and moving and tender. This film is connected to everything our movement is and because Andrea was such a brave visionary warrior VDay supports the film in honor of you and her. Susan and I feel thrilled to join you with the deepest solidarity and love.”
—V (Eve Ensler)
MY NAME IS ANDREA is the story of controversial feminist writer and public intellectual Andrea Dworkin, who offered a revolutionary analysis of male supremacy with iconoclastic flair. Decades before #MeToo, Dworkin called out the pervasiveness of sexism and rape culture, and the ways it impacts every woman’s daily life.
