YOURS IN SISTERHOOD is a participatory documentary featuring letters that were sent to Ms. Magazine during the 1970s. Lusztig films women as they read the letters aloud and respond to their contents. The films creates a dialogue between current feminist discourses and reactions to America’s first mainstream feminist magazine. It invites a personal reflection and encourages audiences to consider the feminisms that have come before and what might follow.
To accompany the screening, we will be working with MILK’s kitchen team to create an American-style buffet.
The screening will be followed by a discussion. Food is included in your ticket.
“A kind of living time capsule putting the past into a dialogue with the present.”
New York Times
“Yours in Sisterhood delves into the archive…bringing neglected letters into the circulation they sought, and changing their unpublished pasts into public futures where their voices are heard. It uses the letter as a form of time travel, and even teleportation. This is science fiction at its highest order: moving non-linearly through time and space, beaming us from past to future and back again, transforming bodies into other bodies through quantum connections.”
