Dawn Borchardt sits down with the most interesting voices in indie film to talk about professional and personal growth in their filmmaking experiences, what their stories mean to them, and how their personal beliefs and histories interweave with the stories they share on screen.


Sirens with Rita Baghdadi

Rita Baghdadi's documentary SIRENS premiered today, on her birthday, at the Sundance Film Festival! What a way to celebrate a birthday! The film follows the Middle East's first all-female metal band in Beirut as they wrestle with friendship, sexuality and destruction in their pursuit of becoming thrash metal rock stars. In this episode we talk about the value of multi-faceted female representation on screen, intergenerational trauma associated with political and familial histories, and some of the more tender moments that are captured between these badass rock stars.
