1. Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold
As a bona fide New Journalism legend and the author of The Year of Magical Thinking, Joan Didion is a woman who has some serious stories to tell, especially about life in the U.S. during the tumultuous ’60s and ’70s. In this documentary, her own nephew gets us closer to both the woman and the myth, giving us a chance to get to know Didion’s real life and her work. Tl;dr, this is the documentary that lovers of journalism and U.S. history buffs won’t wanna miss out on.
2. Seeing Allred
Meet Gloria Allred, who is arguably the most famous women’s rights attorney in the United States. You might know her from representing Nicole Brown’s family in the case against O. J Simpson, but also because she’s been taking on big-name Hollywood sex offenders and has joined hands in solidarity with Trump’s own accusers. In this documentary, we get a better look at the woman behind the media personality and hear her frankly talk about sexual abuse, race, and gender like nobody else can.
