My film project “We R Athletes” is finally completed and I’ve been busily submitting this short documentary to film festivals around the country. Here is a link to a short 1-minute trailer on the movie – enjoy, and let me know what you think!
Here is my short synopsis of the film:
Are female athletes real athletes? This may seem like a silly question to some, but to our mothers and their mothers before them, it’s one that they often faced. Take a look at today’s female athletes and there should be little doubt – these are true athletes! Yet, for many years, girls and women who played sports were considered just that “girls and women playing!”
Female athletes are a strong, dedicated and inspiring group – as much, if not more so, as their male counterparts. This film takes a brief look at just how far our female athletes have come in improving their participation in sports through proper strength and conditioning, and how far they have yet to go. The benefits of reaching their potential by becoming the strong and confident young women, mothers and role models are many, and transcend the most obvious physical strength that they gain.
This film celebrates the accomplishments of female athletes by taking a multi-generational look at how female athletes have evolved over the years and are finally becoming recognized as the true athletes that they are — that they always have been.
