Free Community Event:  Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and First Partner of California Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s newest documentary aims to expose social and economic immobility, as viewed through the lens of American’s gendered values. As increasing inequality has created deep social, economic, and political divides, The Great American Lie exposes how this inequality is rooted in our core beliefs, with the cultural pendulum swinging too far towards revering things we consider “masculine”—like individualism, power, and money—at the expense of things we consider “feminine”—like empathy, care, and collaboration. The Great American Lie blends elements of her previous films focused on gender (Miss Representation, The Mask You Live In) to unpack the even bigger and more urgent issues that affect us all.

Discussion and Q&A immediately following screening
