Catwoman vs. The White House/ U.S.A., 2022, 12’ Directed by: Scott Calonico
The newly discovered audio and video tell the full story of Eartha Kitt’s meeting with the U.S. President and First Lady in 1968. Mixing television clips of Kitt as a Catwoman character and as herself among Washington’s wives, she calls on her superpowers to send a strong message about the Vietnam War. It is a necessary reminder of how society treats black women who speak and how history treats heroines.
