About the online films program:
America is the Land of Opportunity, and fear is the most powerful blockage. Young, precocious heroes of the film PERSONAL STATEMENT are not afraid. They break the mold and become architect of their own fortunes. LOSING SIGHT OF SHORE follows the extraordinary journey of four brave women set out to row the Pacific Ocean from America to Australia unsupported. THE EMPOWERMENT PROJECT: ORDINARY WOMEN DOING EXTRAORDINARY THINGS is the incredible journey of 5 female filmmakers driving across America to encourage, empower, and inspire the next generation of strong women to go after their career ambitions. The heroines of the movie NETIZENS are not afraid to make the internet’s Wild West of unpoliced misogyny, cyberstalking, and nonconsensual pornography.
And, the final flourish of the program is a walking road movie by Jeremy Workman, who is not afraid to confess his love to New York and cheers us: Dare, love THE WORLD BEFORE YOUR FEET.
