MY NAME IS ANDREA

Director/Screenwriter:
PRATIBHA PARMAR

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.

    From a recent zoom interview with director Pratibha Parmar:

    “The idea [of Dworkin] that was kind of prevalent in popular feminism and the left progressive movement [was] of this woman who was anti-sex, anti-male, anti-pornography, who had very simple ideas…this sort of reductive representation of her was completely and immediately demolished when I started to read her books.”

    “I think she was a poet, first and foremost,” Parmar asserts. “The way she wrote, she was a wordsmith. These different ways of putting words together, the phrases, the juxtapositions, all of that, was just something that was really both pleasurable and powerful to encounter on the page.”
