Streaming Feb. 16–22

The story of Dorothy Hunt, a woman sidelined by history, who stood up to The White House in 1972 and fought for families cast aside by their President. She was early in her perception that those in power were pushing the boundaries of what a President was allowed to do and how far a government was willing to push their will.

From matthew: “I started researching a project about a single crime involving Watergate burglar E. Howard Hunt, but then his wife Dorothy became more fascinating. Her story spoke to me because she was a mother trying to wake the father of her children up from pledging blind allegiance to his President; she was a mother who endangered herself politically because she believed in a more equal and just world for her children. Dorothy was ahead of her time and has often not been more than a footnote in remembrance.”
