Ten years after a peaceful socialist revolution, this mockumentary imagines the issues that still plague a perfectly progressive future in a biting piece of satire.

USA | 80 min | NR | Digital Projection | Dir. Lizzie Borden

Set ten years after the most peaceful revolution in United States history, a revolution in which a socialist government gains power, this satirical mockumentary presents a dystopia in which the issues of many progressive groups - minorities, liberals, gay rights organizations, feminists - are ostensibly dealt with by the government, and yet there are still problems with jobs, with gender issues, with governmental preference and violence. In New York City, in this future time, a group of women decide to organize and mobilize, to take the revolution farther than any man - and many women - ever imagined in their lifetimes. (IMDb)
