Yours in Sisterhood is a performative, participatory work filmed across the United States, in which numerous women were invited to discover and perform a fascinating archival source: letters sent to the feminist magazine Ms. in the 1970s. The participants, from a variety of religious backgrounds, sexual orientations, generations and socioeconomic groups, choose to read and react spontaneously to a letter written in the same place, 40 years earlier. Harassment, discrimination, struggle and solidarity: these words from the past resonate powerfully in the age of Trump and the #MeToo movement. Irene Lusztig’s film revisits secondwave feminism through the prism of intersectionality, creating a poignant space for discussion and empathy. (CS – RIDM)
