This fall the fabulous folks at Makers will air 6 new documentaries on PBS. I will watch them and hope you will, too.
Makers aired a documentary in 2013 on PBS about the women’s movement. Perhaps you saw it. These six new docs will focus on women in comedy, women in Hollywood, women in space, women in politics, women in business and women in war.
MAKERS is a digital and video storytelling platform that aims to be the largest and most dynamic collection of women’s stories ever assembled.
In addition to creating video, there was a conference in early 2014. I haven’t seen any news about a 2015 conference.
There are interesting and inspiring videos just bursting from the Makers website. There’s no need to wait for these particular six to reach PBS to sample the good work going on there.
As an example of the type of work that Makers create, here’s a brief video from a series with actress Zooey Deschanel.
