Film and Discussion with filmmaker Ricki Stern '87
In this profound and eye-opening film, award-winning veteran documentarians Ricki Stern '87 and Annie Sundberg '90 accompany author Naomi Wolf as she discusses America's dangerous passage toward becoming a society of fear and surveillance, and expresses her plea to restore our nation's most cherished values. With this galvanizing call to arms based on Wolf's recent book, the film urges us to take back our legacy of freedom and justice.
