So thrilled for former Rozz Therrien and Leah Michaels who were enrolled the Women Who Rock Community course. One of the course assignments was to film an oral history with local participants in scenes that connected music and social justice.
Leah and Rozz interviewed women from Seattle’s self-defense collective HOME ALIVE inspired by Mia Zapata’s life and were astounded that no documentary had been made about this important collective–so they decided to make one and funded the project with grants from UW (including Gender, Women, & Sexuality Studies) and their own kickstarter campaign. They are truly media makers who rock! Their film screens at UW tomorrow for free! Hope you can make it.
