Who Does She Think She Is?
…a riveting documentary by Academy Award-winning producer Pamela Tanner Boll, Who Does She Think She Is? features five bold women who navigate some of the most problematic intersections of our time: parenting and creativity, partnering and independence, economics and art. Through their lives Tanner Boll explores what it means to nurture children and family, and keep the creative fire burning within....In interviews with the artists, and in some cases, their families, Boll raises important questions about how art is valued in our culture.”
A Walk to Beautiful
“In this award-winning documentary, a difficult journey that begins in hopelessness and shame for thousands of women in Ethiopia ends in a productive new life. The film tells the personal stories of rural women who make their way to Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, seeking treatment for obstetric fistula, a life-shattering complication of childbirth. Filmed in a starkly beautiful landscape, the documentary juxtaposes the isolated lives of village women who are outcasts because of their medical condition, with the faraway hospital that offers a miracle after a long and arduous trek—a ‘walk to beautiful.’”
