NYC Film GraphicsAn Evocative Film about the Generation of Women Who Redefined Women’s Roles In Society

We’re so excited to bring the 3T Film Series – which launched in LA in September – to New York City.   By highlighting the power and talent of women over 40 in film, we hope to change the perception of how “women who aren’t kids” are perceived in society and help younger women realize their own potential and the choices they have today in defining their destiny.

LA Film Event: Sept. 19, Screening "Women of '69 Unboxed"Women of ’69 UNBOXED. The Boomer generation started the revolution to change things for women in the 60’s. It was the dawn of a new era for women where they had freedom to make choices in their role in society and change their own destiny which is the subject of Women of ’69 UNBOXED, our first film in the series.

In this award-winning documentary, a group of women, college classmates at Skidmore Class of ’69, who were both electrified and pummeled by the turbulent surf of the 60s, look back, then ahead, as they turn 65, ruminate on their heartaches and triumphs, and evaluate the “dowry” they’ll leave for future generations. Through intimate interviews with 19 of these women, the film focuses on these ordinary lives made extraordinary by the tumultuous times in which they lived.

Join us for the screening and a lively panel discussion, including the filmmakers on how the 60’s defined a generation and how that generation of women changed the world for future generations.  It will be a fun and engaging afternoon!
