A documentary about female directors.

Through this documentary we invite viewers into an intimate conversation with female directors who are using their voices to tell stories that matter to them. Our film strives to encourage, inspire, and provide mentorship for those who are looking to find and use their own unique voice.

 

“Cady McClain’s documentary soars.” “… it is a breath of fresh air.”  “…an inspiring watch.”

Testimonials:

“I thought that no matter who you were in the audience, the words that the women on screen had to share were empowering,” Barba said. “I felt incredibly encouraged and more conscious of the role that men have to play with this new generation of filmmakers in relation to women.” ~Senior Moises Barba Jr., media production major Pepperdine University

 

“If I had seen this while I was still a film student at USC, I would have stayed in production instead of switching my major to writing. Seeing this film now has inspired me to step out from behind my desk and step back onto a set.” ~ Kelly Brinker, American Cinematography Magazine

 

“McClain brilliantly tells her story through several dominant voices, creating a rich tapestry of animation, text and music. Honest, challenging and inspiring!” ~ Director Lizzie Borden, “Born in Flames”

 

“Magnificent!” ~ Award-winning ASC DP Nancy Schreiber

 

“This film is truly wonderful with great insight from the voices of a diverse group of filmmakers. Bravo Cady!” ~ Amy Kawadler, Photographer

 

“Thank you for bringing women’s directing work into the light.” ~ Anne Makepeace, documentary filmmaker- Makepeace Productions

Being silly 😜 while sharing what I’ve learned about sharing ones life and work in the world with a group of badass filmmakers. The skinny: You can promote yourself and your work any way you want to! #curate your social in a tone and style that matches your values, taste, and goals.

It’s so important to listen to the voices of women. We are your mothers, your sisters, your wives, your daughters. When we join to say, “This is wrong. No more,” everyone stands to benefit as we are trying to save and better the culture for all. #maketheworldbetter #listen https://t.co/yHdvWFADEN
