NYWIFT & IFP Present: ‘REPRESENT’ Virtual Sneak Preview Screening + Q&A with director Hillary Bachelder
Join us for a virtual sneak preview screening of REPRESENT along with a ZOOM Q&A following the film at 8 PM ET with Director, Hillary Bachelor, moderated by NYWIFT Board Member, Flo Mitchell-Brown.
Equal parts personal and political, REPRESENT follows three women on both sides of the aisle who share the singular goal of improving their community through public service. Myya attempts to spark a youth movement and unseat the incumbent mayor of Detroit; Bryn, a farmer and working mother in Granville, OH, runs for township trustee; and Julie walks a tightrope between her identities as a Korean immigrant and Republican candidate for State Representative in a liberal Chicago suburb.
**This is a sneak preview screening. Virtual theatrical premiere from Music Box Films on August 14.**
6:30pm EST to 8:00pm EST –– Screening of REPRESENT (recommended viewing time, screening link to be provided)
8:00pm EST to 8:30pm EST –– Q&A with director Hillary Bachelor, moderated by Flo Mitchell-Brown (join via ZOOM)
**Reminder the virtual Q&A is live via ZOOM and we encourage attendees to watch the film beginning at 6:30 PM with private screening link, to be provided within 48 Hours of Event**
