‘Anita’

Why: This riveting documentary revisits the 1991 testimony of Anita Hill at the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. It is still disturbing to see her sitting in front of the all-white, all-male Senate Judiciary Committee while they make her go over the uncomfortable details again and again. Hill was treated like she was on trial: with race-baiting and accusations of lying. We also see Hill looking back at that time and her continuing work for social justice. Her testimony started the national dialogue on sexual harassment and changed the trajectory of her life. Anita is really worth seeing.
