SHE IS REVOLUTIONARY

Directed by
Brittany 'B. Monét' Fennel

#MeToo movement founder Tarana Burke through the eyes of her daughter

New York-based director Brittany 'B. Monét' Fennell makes films that challenge status quo and pose questions about identity, society, race, and culture. It is vital to her that under-represented people are shown in film, media, and television. So when Levi's and Girlgaze came up with an idea for film portrait of an iconic civil rights activist Tarana Burke, Fennell was the right person for the job.

Tarana Burke, civil rights activist and creator of the #metoo movement was featured among other female activists as the Time Person of the Year for 2017. The film explores Tarana’s life as a survivor, activist and mother and how she found the confidence to start a movement telling other survivors they are not alone. Tarana continues to raise awareness, leading the conversation to stop sexual violence through policy change and community support.
