The September 24 screening will be followed by a Q&A featuring director Guylaine Maroist.

BACKLASH: MISOGYNY IN THE DIGITAL AGE throws us into the vortex of online misogyny. This bleak opus, reminiscent of a psychological thriller, follows four women: former President of the Italian parliament Laura Boldrini, former Democratic representative Kiah Morris, French actor and YouTuber Marion Séclin and Donna Zuckerberg, a specialist in online violence against women and the sister of Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg.

Clermont-Dion and Guylaine Maroist’s tour de force documentary reveals the devastating effects unbridled female hatred has on victims and brings to light the singular objective of cyber-misogyny: to silence women who shine.
