Risk Takers & History Makers

We all know that well-behaved women rarely make history, but what of the rebels and writers, artists and activists, mothers, daughters and sisters who refuse to behave? They are the women who take the risks that change society. Who tells their stories? Alice Walker is one such woman, a risk-taker, a poet, human rights activist and novelist.

Funding independent film is an uphill climb at the best of times but for women it is no picnic. If we look a the startling fact that only 7% of directors, 13% of writers, and 20% of producers are female, it’s not hard to see what we are up against. Given such a dearth of female representation behind the camera, is it any wonder that we continue to struggle to find funding for female stories and voices?

We want all women and girls to be empowered around the globe, to believe in our own voices and our own truths. And this is why we need stories of women like Alice Walker who are fearless risk-takers and history makers.

So far we have interviewed inspirational people such as Gloria Steinem, Yoko Ono, Steven Spielberg, Angela Davis, the late Howard Zinn, Danny Glover, Brenda Russell, Tony Award-winner LaChanze, Beverly Guy-Sheftall, Jewelle Gomez, Evelyn C White, Allee Willis and others.

Why Donate

‘The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.’

—Alice Walker.

We do have the power, so let’s use it to create films by and about women.

We know there are many of you out there wanting and waiting to see ALICE WALKER: BEAUTY IN TRUTH and that you come from many different parts of the world. How do we know? Because you have told us. You and our funders have encouraged us to tell this story, and that stories such as these inspire and provoke us to live with a passionate commitment to truth and justice. After 4 years of laughter, excitement, despair, inspiration, and hard work we are sprinting towards the finishing line, but we need your help.

How Your Contribution Will Help

Your donation will go towards post production costs as well as music and archive clearances.

For your donation, you get our eternal gratitude; a truly inspiring film that will empower us all to make a difference; the lasting knowledge that you enabled ALICE WALKER: BEAUTY IN TRUTH to be birthed into the world and your name on the Donor Wall.
