Albert Einstein, the most famous scientist of all time, was a world renowned celebrity, greeted like a rock star when he appeared in public. An anti-war firebrand, Einstein also spoke out on issues ranging from women's rights and racism to immigration and nuclear arms control. But today, his image has been neutered into that of a charmingly absent-minded genius. He was, in fact, a powerful force for social change and a model for political activism.

Using a wealth of rarely-seen archival footage, correspondence, and new and illuminating interviews, filmmaker Julia Newman makes the case that Albert Einstein's example of social and political activism is as important today as are his brilliant, ground-breaking theories.

"Get ready to have your image of Einstein changed for the better. One of the most fascinating aspects of Newman’s documentary is the way she captures that transitional moment between a genius unknown outside his own particular academic circle and a celebrity. The film gives viewers a closer look at the man and his influence on the world beyond anything he did in math or physics. He not only stood up for what he believed in, he wasn’t afraid to act against injustice when he saw it."

"Reveals the fascinating and little-known history of Einstein's work for social change, reminding us of the inextricable link between speaking the truth and healing the world. At a time when science itself is under attack, its stories of the famous physicist's life-long commitment to peace and social justice offer urgent lessons for today."

Julia Newman's Documentary Into the Fire

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, “their heroism leaves Hemingway’s romantic notions of this war in the dust” (from High Falls Film Festival).
