REPRESENT, an exceedingly timely documentary following three women running to reshape local politics on their terms is currently available for virtually viewing through the Little Theater.
REPRESENT is a Kartemquin (Minding the Gap, Hoop Dreams, etc.) documentary from filmmaker Hilary Bachelder. The film interweaves the lives of Myya Jones, Bryn Bird, and Julie Cho during and following their groundbreaking campaigns; focusing on how their layered gender, racial, and socio-economic identities shape their beliefs and how they interact with the communities they hope to represent.
Ultimately, this film showcases the complexities of being a woman in local politics by asking how democratic power is constructed, and how malleable these systems really are. That is why we would love to invite the community in and around Rochester to see the film virtually, while supporting the Little Theatre beginning 08.14.20.
We know that we are in a time of crisis, with the pandemic and continuing nationwide protests over systemic injustice and anti-blackness, but we would appreciate you taking the time to view this important new film.
