Game Changers: Anita: Speaking Truth to Power

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Game Changers: Inspiring Women - From international icons to unsung heroes, we partner with Luminato Festival to celebrate revolutionary women who changed the rules in politics, art, civil rights and beyond.

Twenty years after delivering powerful testimony at the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, U.S. attorney Anita Hillrevisits her heroic stand against systemic sexism. Having endured repeated harassment from Thomas, Hill faced an all-white male jury in a grueling nine-hour experience that would become a turning point for gender equality in the United States. Academy Award-winning filmmaker Freida Mock traces Hill's historic triumph, one that paved the way for women to speak their truth to power.
