Like a Girl Productions, Inc. supports female documentarians who, in creating awareness through film, highlight important issues in both their communities and worldwide.
This nonprofit was founded in 2014, when the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film wrote that women comprised “17% of all directors, writers, producers, executive producers, editors, and cinematographers working on the top 250 grossing films”(The Celluloid Ceiling). In response, we work to help bridge this vast gender gap and promote women involved in all levels of the film industry.
"The Repository" is an independent journalistic documentary about the proposed nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain in Nevada. The goal of this documentary is to tell the history of Yucca Mountain and explain the conflicting views on the proposed repository.
"Monumental Reductions" is an independant journalistic documentary created after the Trump administration announcement to drastically reduce two national monuments in Utah and is expected to announce several other monuments including the Gold Butte Butte National Monument in Nevada and Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument in Oregon. Many environmental activists and Native American tribes have spoken against the decision. Their arguments however run against companies and some officials who want to see that land developed and used for mining, cattle grazing, oil, and gas exploration. The documentary examines both sides of the issue and offers a glimpse into America’s national monuments.
"1 in 3: A Case Against Cancer" is a documentary that follows four New Yokers with cancer who are supplementing their eastern, traditional, cancer treatment by going vegan and non-toxic for six months.
