Four Pantheon Leaders – Alicia Goodrow, Donna Cole, Susan Hodge, and Neena Newberry – participated in the Gender in the Media Forum in Dallas in February. They joined with several hundred women and men to learn about the latest research and action items highlighted by The Representation Project and CommonSense. It was inspiring to participate in an event with a common cause and to see the preview of The Representation Project’s newest film examining the negative impact of media imagery on our boys.
“I Dream Too Much”
A film by Katie Cokinos with Executive Producer Rick Linklater.
Pantheon of Women is an Executive Producers with Middle Kid Productions on this film starring Diane Ladd and Erin Brolin. It is the beautiful story of three generations of women pursuing their dreams. In the dark, snowy days of winter, each has reached an end….and can’t see the new beginnings ahead. Aunt Vera (Diane Ladd) is an unpublished author of the “Greatest Generation” who sponsors others, but no longer believes in her dreams. Dora (Erin Brolin) has graduated with her Millennial Generation friends into a world of uncertainty – she wants to escape to Brazil and have fun putting the challenges of adult life on hold. Dora’s mom (Christina Rouner) has spent 20 years putting her life on hold while raising her daughter and needs to find a new beginning. The three of them find new paths and new friendships in the support of the women in their lives. Jay Thames and EdMcMillan are running production in February!
