THE LADY BIRD DIARIES
A groundbreaking all-archival documentary film about Lady Bird Johnson, one of the most influential and least understood first ladies. Beautifully honed from 123 hours of Lady Bird’s intimate audio diary, the film brings her to life and reveals her as a shrewd political strategist who preserved natural resources for the American people through her policies of “beautification.” A great time capsule of an era of turmoil and progress that deeply resonates today. – Ruth Somalo
