Since 2015, I have been filming ten young women from very diverse backgrounds who studied at Barnard College and are actively reshaping politics, feminism, sorority, and gender boundaries. I now have hundreds of hours of footage, from formal interviews to vérité sequences of their daily life, of protests, and of the 2017 Women’s March. The film project establishes them as cinematic characters as they search and construct their own selves, while also documenting a particular state of feminist praxis in the early 21st century. I intend to follow some of these women until they are in their fifties, from 2015 to 2045. This material is currently being edited, and for my talk I will show unreleased footage.
