The right to peacefully protest is a cornerstone of American democracy. The Women’s March on Washington on January 21st, 2017 will go down as the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history. On that day people from different cultures, races, genders, and ages came together to fight for their rights and to petition their government. It was a truly peaceful and positive outpouring of love for our nation and determination to be present in its progress.
It was this positivity and love of country that inspired a group of women-led filmmakers to document the historic march. Industry experts then joined together to support women in filmmaking through the completion of the film.
Furthermore, the making of this project inspired the creation of SLMBR PRTY, an initiative to connect exceptionally talented women within the film world. SLMBR PRTYwill have it’s official launch March 16th, 2017. This is America is SLMBR PRTY’s first collaborations amongst it’s members.
