My Name is Andrea

Institute History

  • 2017 Sundance Documentary Film Grant


My Name Is Andrea, a creative documentary on Andrea Dworkin (1946-2005), one of the most radical feminist writers of the 20th Century and the original ‘nasty woman’, whose experience of male violence was the unflinching compass for her writings. For throwing her piercing gaze on toxic patriarchy she was vehemently pilloried and vilified. The film explores the visceral effects of male violence on women’s psyche and bodies through Dworkin’s verbatim writings.
