When we screened the Doucheaholics pilot at Dances With Films in LA two years ago, and then episodes 3 & 4 there last year, my co-creator and writer/director Sean McCarthy did interviews with We Are Moving Stories, and we’ve used those articles ever since in our press kit. You guys are a fantastic platform for indie filmmakers to be seen and heard. You’re doing the Lord’s work team at We Are Moving Stories!
The more people who hear about Letter from Masanjia - An SOS from Across the World, the bigger the audience it will get and the more minds it can open to this important subject. We Are Moving Stories’ audience is exactly the compassionate, intelligent, and worldly subset who I had in mind for this film and who I feel would be motivated to act after seeing it.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve always wanted to find more stories about women made by women. And it’s becoming easier now than before, but it’s because of platforms like We Are Moving Stories. They help perpetuate the normal idea that our world is diverse, filled with different perspectives and stories, and the content that we put out there should be showcasing the same possibilities. I made this film so that young girls could watch more content made by women, and I know that with this platform, I’m on the right track.
I’m enthusiastic about sharing this passion project, Anatomy of an Orchid, with other cinephiles! I’m a queer filmmaker and We Are Moving Stories has covered FrameLine, Female Eye, Outfest, and so many other fests I love. I’m just happy to be part of the conversation.
