A new Netflix production coming out next week examines the women’s movement of the 1970s in part through the photographs of Cynthia MacAdams. The documentary, “Feminists: What Were They Thinking,” will be released Oct. 12 on Netflix.
“In 1977, a book of photographs captured an awakening — women shedding the cultural restrictions of their childhoods and embracing their full humanity,” Netflix says in an announcement today. “‘Feminists: What Were They Thinking?’ revisits those photos, those women and those times — and takes aim at our current culture revealing all too vividly the urgent need for continued change. The film offers candid and riveting interviews with women such as Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Judy Chicago and Laurie Anderson tackling topics ranging from identity, abortion, race, childhood and motherhood.
The Netflix original documentary is directed by Johanna Demetrakas.
Here’s the official trailer, released today …
