Women to Women – an enlightening, poignant and sometimes humorous film of women’s advice to other women, with a dash of women’s history and quotes.
Last summer, my 19-year old daughter and I embarked on a journey from New Mexico to Minnesota to visit my elderly aunts. Armed with a television camera and plenty of tape, I asked each of them what advice they had for other women. Their answers were amusing, insightful, heartwarming and profound. I would never have guessed at the answers I got, and my daughter gained a deeper sense of pride and respect for her own femininity.
Following that trip, I went on to interview my neighbors and a few friends asking only, “As a women, what advice do you have for other women?” A half dozen interviews later, and the production of Women to Women began forming in my mind.
I wondered, how is the instantaneous advice of an 18-year-old high school woman different from that of a 90-year-old holocaust survivor? Does basic advice change over time? Do women return to the ardent ideals of their youth or mellow in the wisdom of old age? What is constant? What defines our commonality?
In order to complete Women toWomen, I plan on traveling for 30 days within the continental United States to both small towns and big cities seeking a diverse group of women aged from 18 to 100, soliciting the unrehearsed advice of women to women.
I anticipate that as I edit and piece together this comprehensive film, women’s goals and desires, views of education, interpersonal relationships, reflections of motherhood, and aging, and a whole lot of unanticipated subjects, will make evident the strengths, weaknesses, humor, and wisdom of women..
The Women to Women video will be made into a television show available and distributed on DVD to at least 1 television station in all locations where interviews are performed. Contributors will be able to follow our travels online.
We'll wrap this up into a book and let you know the cost and availability when it is completed.
Why should you give me money?
I am asking for money to help me pay for economical travel expenses for me and my professional camera assistant and for her still photography and time. Included will be equipment rental and supply costs.
Larger contributors can request locations and request a woman to be interviewed. For those contributing $2,000 or more, we will visit your town and you or the woman of your choice will be interviewed, with a possible appearance in the film.
When and Where will interviews be recorded?
I will drive around the United States and interview 30 straight days from August 1 to August 30, 2012, and will require an additional 30 days to edit, and distribute the video.
Will you rest and vacate?
No! We will travel and record with urgency to interview the maximum number of women we can in 30 days!
