This film tells the stories of working-class women who don’t see themselves represented by their government and so make the leap, at great personal sacrifice, to run for office. We can all relate to their stories - when the tragedy of a personal loss or the anger at a grave injustice moves us to action. This is not a film about division, rather a reminder of the vision of what our ideal government is supposed to be - by the people, for the people.Read More
Students around the world are striking to demand action on climate change. We at Blueshift are ready to follow their lead. The climate they are inheriting is changing, and we need to prioritize them and their message as we find a way through the changes that have already happened, and urgently act to slow or avoid the ones to come. We’re honored to be creating educational materials with film teams who use documentary film to raise awareness, to give faces, names and images to the stories, and to inspire action.
Shout-out to two of the films we worked with this past year, End Game and RBG, who were nominated for Oscars. Congrats to both film teams for these tremendous stories. (And congratulations to Dark Money and Charm City - two other fabulous documentary films we developed educational content for who were shortlisted by the Academy).
What an awesome way to celebrate our third birthday! We have much to be grateful for and to celebrate as well. In 2019, we worked on over twenty-four new projects...
This seems like a timely moment to take stock. History is calling and documentary film stories inform our understanding of the past and animate our present. The films we work with can help to make sense of all that is happening.Read More
“With Martin Luther King we have the holiday and we talk about how wonderful he was. But we really should develop his work. That’s our responsibility - everybody’s responsibility. There are 300 million of us, and social change is the job of each of us.”
Diane Nash, in King in the Wilderness
