  • February 13, 2014 - 7:00pm

Two decades after Anita Hill accused then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment as an electrified nation followed the saga on their television screens, Oscar-winning director Freida Lee Mock (Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision) revisits the notorious case – and raises provocative questions about race, gender, politics and class in the media age. Featuring interviews with New York Times editor Jill Abramson, New Yorker journalist Jane Mayer, Harvard law professor Charles Ogletree, Anita thrillingly challenges our previously held assumptions about one of the most bizarre chapters of recent American history. 85 minutes.
