Seeing Allred my festival fave
Without a doubt, my favourite film at the festival this year was Seeing Allred, a fast-paced doc about U.S. women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred. This film, in the U.S. Documentary Competition at Sundance 2018, packs a powerful emotional punch as it tracks the firebrand from her university years to the present. This film left me moved to tears -- and infuriated at the same time. How could we still be fighting these same battles so many decades later?
Here, in alphabetical order, are other films I saw and can recommend from this year’s crop:
* Anote’s Ark
* The Devil We Know
* The Game Changers
* The Puzzle
* The Sentence
* The Tale
* This is Home
