I Want to make a Film About Women

The new Soviet Union of the 1920s championed equality for women and great innovation in the creative arts. Until it didn’t. Looking back at that time, history remembers the men who were celebrated and then shut down.
But women were there, too, and they were influential, powerful and brilliant. I want to make a film about women gazes into a creative communal kitchen and watches these women transform it into a workshop, then a stage set, then a film, all the while juggling noisy men and the wolves of history. It imagines what the revolutionary women artists of the 1920s said, what they did, and what they might have created had it not been for Stalin’s suppression.
