Frances Reid is a veteran of forty years of activist documentary filmmaking.  In 1975 she founded Iris Feminist Collective to tell the stories and amplify the voices of those who had been traditionally underrepresented and misrepresented by the mainstream film business.  She has used documentary film as a tool for bridge building, for activating, and for reframing the narrative of women, of lesbians, and of people of color, believing that how we tell our stories impacts how we see and are seen in the world.  She is currently writing a book on her experiences of making films in the United States and Africa.

Long Night’s Journey Into Day is Frances Reid’s documentary about South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission,
