Description

Tracing the influence of the Women's Movement's Second Wave on art and life, "The Heretics" is the exhilirating inside story of the New York feminist art collective that produced "Heresies: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics" (1977-92).  In this feature-length documentary, cutting-edge video artist/writer/director Joan Braderman, who joined the group in 1975 as an aspiring filmmaker, reconnects with 24 group members, worldwide.  By revealing this smart, funny and sexy collective's history, the film presents a microcosm of the period's broader transformations, challenging the very terms of gender and power in our time.
