Howard Zinn’s Emma

Synopsis
Filmed performance of Howard Zinn’s stage play ‘Emma’, a dramatisation of the life of Emma Goldman, the anarchist, feminist, and free-spirited thinker who was exiled from the United States because of her outspoken views, including her opposition to World War I. Filmed live in 2005 at the Byrdcliffe Theatre in Woodstock, New York, with Zinn in attendance, the play draws on Goldman’s influential autobiography, speeches, and political writings to trace her emergence as one of the foremost radical intellectuals and dissident activists in America in the early part of the 20th century.

This performance of ‘Emma’ was directed by Bruce Grund, and filmed by Malachi Roth. Includes a Q & A after the performance with Howard Zinn and others.
