Description

Overlooked by much of history, inspirational legal trailblazer Pauli Murray finally gets a justly deserved celebration in this remarkable and artful ode to Pauli’s life and legacy by Oscar-nominated filmmakers Betsy West & Julie Cohen (RBG). Murray’s own writings and recordings permeate the film, allowing us to truly glimpse into this brilliant, pioneering force’s personal experiences while also bringing to light the tremendous influence of Pauli’s legal work on both landmark civil rights decisions and gender equality legislation. “Those aware of Murray’s considerable achievements will appreciate the many fresh insights in a documentary destined to win hearts, minds and audiences.” - Screen Daily
