I’m excited to share that the video of my TEDxSeattle talk is FINALLY live!!! When I started working on this talk in July, I couldn’t have imagined how vulnerable I would feel, delivering what now seems like a timely counter narrative to a packed McCaw Hall, just 2 weeks after […]

Reviewing LWGMS Girls’ Social Justice Shorts

January 20, 2016

I had the pleasure of reuniting with my fellow female doc filmmaker friends (LtoR: Cassy Soden, Amy Benson, Gretchen Burger) for one of my favorite on-site Work-In-Progress (WIP) gigs. This was our 2nd year working with the 8th grade girls at Lake WA Girls Middle School, offering feedback on the […]

I was very moved by this film. I think all of the bravery and courage was outstanding. It was amazing to see the women from the tribe have an opportunity to share their stories the way that they remembered them. The fact that everything was shared on camera was very […]

This film was truly powerful I’ve been very close to several victims of sexual abuse. Sometimes the only way I can help them is just to listen. I can see the relief they feel just by telling someone. This was so clear in the film. I could see them saying […]

Watching A LOT LIKE YOU gave me shivers. The way the two women, Ellie’s Aunts, talked about their experiences makes you realize that differences in culture don’t just extend to language, celebrations, or tradition. They go even farther to how people act, and how they see the world. Although [there […]
