The Willmar 8
Grant's feature length directorial debut follows eight women in America's heartland who are driven by gender discrimination to picket the bank where they work, in the dead of a Minnesota winter. Risking jobs, friends, family and their place in the community, the Willmar 8 began the longest bank strike in American history in a dramatic attempt to assert their own equality and self-worth. With a stirring original score by Peter, Paul, and Mary's Peter Yarrow, Lee Grant's first film is a knockout as relevant now as it ever was.
