This Momentous Centennial
I am was thrilled to share that the New York Historical Society produced a custom version of our film, We Rise, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment being signed - removing sex as a barrier to the vote. It was truly an honor to collaborate with Donna Lawrence Productions to make this piece and celebrate the women who gave us such an important story tell.
Here is the release from the New York Historical Society.
The grainy footage of marching “suffragettes” takes on new meaning when we view them in the related context of the collective action of the women who came both before and after them, and contemplate the road ahead for those who are still to come. New-York Historical’s inspiring short film, We Rise, re-tells this story in all of its complexity, foregrounding New York's pivotal role. Narrated by Meryl Streep, the immersive film experience customarily screens daily onsite in our Robert H. Smith Auditorium. With our doors currently closed—and in honor of this momentous centennial—we are sharing an abridged version of We Rise with you. Come experience the full film when we reopen on September 11!'
