Who Does She Think She Is?
From the producing team, that won an Academy Award for Born Into Brothels, comes WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS?, a film that examines some of the most pressing balancing-act issues of our time: parenting and work, partnering and independence, economics and art. WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS?, produced and directed by Pamela Boll, screens on Thursday May 7th at the Arlington Center for the Arts.
WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS? follows five women artists as they navigate the economic, psychological, and spiritual challenges of making work outside the elite art world. From studios in Cambridge and Providence to the suburbs of Ohio, from HawaiiÂs Big Island to New York City, from the deserts of New Mexico to the tropics of St. Vincent, we watch as these women, ranging in age from 27 to 65, fight to honor their vision and their families every day.
Interviews with such experts as Riane Eisler (The Chalice and the Blade), Maura Reilly (Sackler Center for Feminist Art-Brooklyn Museum), Courtney E. Martin (Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters), Tiffany Shlain (The Webby Awards) and the Guerrilla Girls add a cultural context for these womenÂs uplifting journeys.
It is not accolades these women artists seek; itÂs simply the radical opportunity to live whole.
Pamela Tanner Boll produced and directed WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS? She co-executive produced the Academy award-winning film, Born into Brothels: The Kids of Calcutta's Red Light District. She is currently producing the film projects: Global Moms; Life on the Edge: True Stories of Doctors Without Borders; 9/12: From Chaos to Community; Kashmir; and In a Dream.
