The Archivettes

New York Premiere

Dir. Megan Rossman, USA and Australia, 2017, 61 mins

Led by local heroes Deb Edel and Joan Nestle in the 1970s, a group of young lesbians frustrated by misogyny and homophobia within academia huddled together and built an accessible archive of lesbian documents and artifacts for those conducting research, both professional and personal. The location: a bedroom in a modest apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

In its nearly 50 years of existence, the Lesbian Herstory Archives has weathered many storms, from the feminist sex wars to a move to Brooklyn. Today, with its founders in their seventies, the Archives is staring down its next challenge: a change in leadership. This highly anticipated feature debut from Megan Rossman is a thoughtful and more intergenerational expansion of NewFest 2016 Audience Award winner for Best Documentary short, LOVE LETTER RESCUE SQUAD.

Presented in partnership with The Future of Film Is Female, Film Fatales, and the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project.

This encore screening will be preceded by an announcement of the Jury Award winners for this year’s festival!
