The 9to5 movement was born in a small Boston office during the Seventies to become over the decades one of the most important national organizations that fights for the defense of working women?s rights. This movie (signed by the same directors of American Factory, produced by Michelle and Barack Obama?s Higher Ground and winner of the Oscar for Best Documentary) follows the history of a movement that made a strong impact on the collective imagination of a country, inspiring famous songs and cult movies.

Steven Bognar (Milwaukee, USA, 1963) and Julia Reichert (Bordentown, USA, 1946) are two acclaimed documentary filmmakers whose work has received numerous awards from around the world. They made in 2019 the documentary American Factory, produced by Michelle and Barack Obama?s Higher Ground, which won the Oscar for Best Documentary in 2020.
