THE DEATH AND LIFE OF MARSHA P. JOHNSON

(2017, Tribeca)

Dir. David France (Oscar- DGA-, and Sundance Grand Jury Prize-nominated HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE); documentary. Legendary co-founder of the 1970s trans rights movement Marsha P. Johnson was found dead in the Hudson River 24 years ago, and after trying and failing to provoke a police investigation, her best friend and fellow activist Sylvia Rivera died a few years later, the victim of a broken heart. Now, as decades-old interviews and never-before-seen footage have surfaced, transgender activists raise new questions about Marsha’s death, and find a deep connection to their shared history.
