No Time to Waste celebrates 98-year-old national park ranger Betty Reid Soskin’s life, work, and urgent mission to restore critical missing chapters of America’s story. The film follows her impressive trajectory from a kitchen stool in a tiny theatre to reaching national and international audiences, relaying the stories of her fascinating personal journey, from her experiences as a young worker in a WWII segregated union hall, through her multi-faceted career as a singer, activist, mother, legislative representative, and park planner. In her present public role at the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historic Park, Soskin illuminates the invisible histories of African Americans and other people of color, and her efforts demonstrate how her work has impacted the way the National Park Service conveys such history to audiences across the US, challenging fellow citizens to move together toward a more perfect union. Director Carl Bidleman (US 2019) 50 min.
