“Feminism has shaped the society we live in. But just how far has it brought us, and how relevant is it today? This feature documentary zeroes in on key concerns such as violence against women, access to abortion, and universal childcare, asking how much progress we have truly made on these issues. Rich with archival material and startling contemporary stories, Status Quo? uncovers answers that are provocative and at times shocking.
i’m screening this in my living room tomorrow - if you’re in quebec city, be there.
OH MY GOD, Y’ALL, THE DOCUMENTARY IS FINALLY UP! This has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I hope you all enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it.
Special thanks: to my lovely stars, Jessica and Keena—I love you both for life; to Hannah and Ivana, the best co-producers a girl could ask for; to Re/Dress NYC and Taueret for being fucking kick-ass; to Substantia Jones and The Adipositivity Project for being one of the most inspiring examples of fat-visibility-as-activism; and to my entire documentary film-making class and all the friends who helped along the way. I LOVE YOU ALL. <3

HEARTS TO ALL INVOLVED!
shameless self-promotion: just wrote a quick post about this great documentary up at my blog.
"Throughout its history Hollywood has made about 4,000 movies of Native Americans, largely westerns, but in most of them Native Americans were portrayed with a bunch of cliches. Isinamowin - The Whiteman’s Indian takes a closer look at the silver screen and other Native American stereotypes.”
the first half of this was awesome, but it got mediocre once we got to the 2000s.
