Erin's Past Films

Erin has been making documentaries ever since we met in 1996. She specializes in portraits and for today's post I want to show off one of her earliest pieces, called A Merry Widow.

The beauty about Erin's work is that she approaches her subjects with generosity. And when she focuses her work on women, she's able to hear the stories that are often overlooked in our mainstream culture. This means that in the interview process, the women she interviews trust her, open up, are unafraid to laugh at themselves but also unafraid to make claims about who they are and what they want to be.

As we finish up interviews for Fascinating Womanhood Documentary and head into the editing process, we still don't know what the final film will look like. It has been a journey, an exploration, and we appreciate all the support we've had so far.

We'll link to other films from Erin as we go along. Think of them as tapas; small and flavorful, satisfying.
