A NOTE FROM THE FILMMAKER

sacha-sphinx.jpg

I started working on We Are She in response to the building polarization I saw in the United States and elsewhere. I wanted to explore if given the opportunity to hear each other out could we agree to disagree and still find common ground.

All of the women featured in the documentary series came to me via six degrees of separation. In each location one woman I knew led me to the others. 

I had no idea at the time that I started how much more difficult it would become to find our common ground as events played out in the future. 

Here we are in 2021 trying to make sense of the election result divisions that led to an insurrection at the U.S. Capital, a military leadership governing Egypt and France, along with the rest of the globe, trying to overcome a pandemic and all of it’s consequences.  It's time to revisit the women we've met and bring others into the discussion.  

 

At this point this series is self and crowd funded. I hope you will consider making a donation using the link below. Any amount will be greatly appreciated.

Help us break down barriers and gain greater understanding of how women from across the globe think about the issues we are all facing in this perilous time. I really believe that now more than ever it's essential to keep the conversation going. 

 

Please forward this website to anyone you think may be interested - via email, social media, word-of-mouth, message

in a bottle sent out to sea  . . . whatever works for you!

 

Sincerely,

Sacha Shawky
