ABOUT THE FILM
Equal parts personal and political, Represent interweaves the stories of women on both sides of the aisle who share the singular goal of improving their community through public service. Myya (22) attempts to spark a youth movement and unseat the incumbent mayor of Detroit, MI; Bryn (33), a farmer and working mother in Granville, OH, runs for township trustee, but, in doing so, is placed in opposition with the only other woman in office; and Julie (47) walks a tightrope between her identities as a Korean immigrant, woman of color, and Republican candidate for State Representative in a liberal Chicago, IL suburb. Through portraying the nuances of local politics, Represent elevates both the systemic failings and unsung heroes at the heart of our “smallest” elections.
