Ellevate Denver will host the first ever Denver-screening of the new documentary spotlighting ordinary women doing extraordinary things.
What would you do if you weren’t afraid to fail?
That’s the question Emmy Award Winning filmmakers Sarah Moshman and Dana Michelle Cook asked themselves before embarking on a 7,000 mile road trip across the US with a group of all female filmmakers in 2013. Tired of the lack of positive female role models in the media after working in reality television for networks like ABC, NBC, MTV, Lifetime and TLC, Sarah and Dana felt inspired to make a change after reading Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In.”
Once they raised money on Kickstarter to launch, the all female crew interviewed 17 extraordinary women in total, including Denver chef Mary Nguyen of Parallel Seventeen, and other inspirational women from across the country spanning from a pilot, athlete and astronaut to the first female four star admiral in the US Navy, architect, mathematician and many more. The common thread being that each woman did not let fear or struggle and especially not gender stand in the way of achieving her dream.
