“The original movie was a Trojan horse using comedy to highlight the issues working women needed addressed; the documentary about the movie is dedicated to highlighting how far we have left to go to address them. “

THE STORY

When the highest-grossing comedy,  “9 to 5,” starring Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton, Dabney Coleman and Lily Tomlin, exploded on the cinema screens in 1980, the laughs hid a serious message about women in the office. “Still Working 9 to 5” explores why workplace inequality 40 years later was never a laughing matter.

The documentary explores the comedic tone of the film and how it resonated with a wide audience at a time when the feminist message was being rejected and/or feared by a large swathe of the population.

The documentary follows how the success of the film spawned various “9 to 5” spinoffs including: TV Series (1980s) and Musicals (2009 & 2019), discussing the same issues portrayed in the Film (and its spinoffs), and question if the message retains its original poignancy and continues to hold relevance today, as it did 40 years ago…
