WE ARE THE RADICAL MONARCHS – documentary film

January 18, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

  • Audience Award Winner for Best Feature at INSIDE OUT Ottawa LGBT Film Festival 2019
  • Audience Award Winner for Best Documentary Film at INSIDE OUT Toronto LGBT Film Festival 2019

A group of girls chant into megaphones holding clenched fists high and showcasing colourful badges sporting the words,“Black Lives Matter” and “Radical Beauty.” The award winning documentary follows a social justice-oriented group in Oakland CA, similar to the Girl Guides here in Canada. They still earn badges – not for sewing or selling cookies, but for units on Black Lives Matter, Radical Beauty, being an LGBTQ Ally, Protecting the Environment and Disability Justice. The group, started by two queer women of colour, is anchored in the belief that girls of colour need dedicated spaces and a foundation that is rooted in fierce, interdependent sisterhood, self-love and hope. The filmmakers explores why is this group is important now, and why are so many Americans are threatened by young women exploring how to advocate for themselves and others?

“Absolutely enchanting…The highlight of WE ARE THE RADICAL MONARCHS is seeing the young girls step into power.”
– San Francisco Bay Times
