Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and First Partner of California Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s newest documentary aims to expose social and economic immobility, as viewed through the lens of American’s gendered values. As increasing inequality has created deep social, economic, and political divides, The Great American Lie exposes how this inequality is rooted in our core beliefs, with the cultural pendulum swinging too far towards revering things we consider “masculine”—like individualism, power, and money—at the expense of things we consider “feminine”—like empathy, care, and collaboration. The Great American Lie blends elements of her previous films focused on gender (Miss Representation, The Mask You Live In) to unpack the even bigger and more urgent issues that affect us all.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT TICKETING:

Community Cinema tickets are still free, but you must have a ticket to attend the screening. Please select the “Print-at-Home” option when ordering your ticket online, and then either print your ticket at home to bring with you, or show it on your mobile device at the door.

Please arrive earlyfor all Community Cinema screenings. Since this is a free screening, we experience many no-shows and must overbook the theater in order to compensate. Your ticket will not guarantee you a seat if we are already full when you arrive.

You will no longer receive reminder emails about your attendance or asking if you need to cancel, so if you register for a screening but find you are unable to attend, we would be extremely grateful if you would email us at [email protected] to cancel your reservation so we can offer your seat to another patron (and help us pare down the number of aforementioned no-shows).

Thanks for your support of Community Cinema!
