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.
On this episode, Dawn talks with filmmaking partners Willow O'Feral and Brad Heck for their documentary Sisters Rising. The film is an intimate portrait of 6 Native women who have survived sexual violence and/or domestic violence in their lives, and how that has transformed them. Through their trauma, they have become inspiring women who are fighting to help other women in their communities by providing support, sharing their stories, and working to change tribal and federal laws to protect women in the future. Dawn, Willow and Brad talk about the process of getting to know people in a community that is not your own, the impact these stories have had on them and why they're important to share. The film is streaming now on PBS' America Reframed World Channel.
