In October 1991 the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Judge Clarence Thomas were rocked by the testimony of Anita Hill, who claimed he has sexually harassed her.

This screening is part of our Black History Month at VIFF Vancity Theatre and will be followed by a Vancity Impact Talk, moderated by Vancity board member and lawyer Niki Sharma, and with panelists Mebrat Mimi Beyene of WISH Drop-In Centre Society and Angela Marie MacDougall of BWSS Battered Women's Support Services.

«An important historical document about an event that prompted a larger cultural conversation about sexual harassment.» Miriam Bale, The New York Times.

«Enthralling and revealing.» Duane Byrge, The Hollywood Reporter.
