Into the Fire: American Women in the Spanish Civil War


Spain: 1936: right-wing military officers led by General Franco (and supported by Hitler and Mussolini) attempt to overthrow the newly elected, democratic government.  In response, nearly 80 American women joined the Good Fight - volunteering, in defiance of the US government, to help fight the Fascists in what would become the Spanish Civil War.

In this enthralling, meticulously researched documentary, 16 of these brave and idealistic nurses, writers and journalists share stories of courage and commitment to a just cause.  Weaving archival materials with words from the likes of Dorothy Parker and Eleanor Roosevelt, "the heroism leaves Hemingway's romantic notions of this war in the dust."
