We’ve had just sixty days of production on the WMN collection and already we’ve filmed in five countries spanning three continents, covering a range of issues from land rights in the United States to war to child brides in the Middle East. To stitch this global narrative together we’ve teamed up with legendary systems scientist and macro-historian, Dr. Riane Eisler, to learn more about the cultural constructions that rank one half of humanity (the male) over another (the female). We hope that by understanding the roots of this structure we can better elevate the status of women. In collaboration with Blackbeard Films in Oakland, California, we produced a trailer for the project that was screened at a Los Angeles event in honor of Helene D. Gayle, the outgoing CEO of CARE International. Some have called Helene the most influential humanitarian alive for her ability to mobilize humanitarian aid missions on a global scale and distribute vital resources to millions of people. We were inspired by her talk, her tireless work on behalf of the dispossessed, and grateful for the opportunity to screen our film. Thank you CARE! And thank you Helene!
