When We Gather:
The Screenings

When We Gather celebrates the historic achievements of women, whose efforts led to the election of the first female Vice President of the United States. During a time of seemingly unbridgeable division, the film calls for women to usher in unity while celebrating the elemental role they have played during this election season and throughout history in bringing sweeping change across the country.

When We Gather,  the black box version of the film and When We Gather: Together, a 35-minute documentary film that contextualizes the film will tour art and cultural institutions, museums, and schools throughout the United States through 2021.
