We’ve been traveling the U.S. and screening the film in front of young teens – college students, along with their mentors & teachers. Screenings have become an excellent training and discussion opportunity for organizations trying to provide positive outlets for their youth.
It’s a film about ambition.
We open the film with a Girl Scouts scene where we speak to a local group about becoming leaders and what it is like for them to overcome obstacles unique to only girls. We then introduce an all-girls robotics team and follow them for 3 years.
We wanted to see if their mentors experiment (of separating them from the boys) will work. The movie reaches into the causes for lost-ambition and what to do about it.
Pioneers in Skirts is a 60-min entertaining documentary film that discusses what ambitious girls and women confront as they go after their dreams, and what we ALL must do as a culture to change it.
After the screening we’re having an audience Q&A. And, at 2:30pm Pioneers in Skirts is hosting a FREE filmmaker panel on the topic of Inclusion in Film. It’ll be an amazing day for us and we do hope you can be part of it!
