We got a write up! It's in Entertainment Magazine Online (which was an Arizona Newspaper that went online in the early days of the internet and has since branched out a bit). One of the writers, Madelyn Ritrosky attended a pre-screening of SSL and, well, wrote about it. It seems she's into sexual equality also and has a book and short film coming that also deal with that subject, so I'll be on the look-out for that.
There is also a Q&A with me at the end. The article is called "Science, Sex, and the Ladies, Oh My!" so go check it out!
Here's a quick preview below - oh, and did you like our official movie troupe headshot? We call it our AnC selfie.

The filmmakers call the film’s format “a new form of non-fiction cinema, the visual essay.” While it is thoroughly researched and even puts citations on-screen, like research paper footnotes, they present their case primarily through quirky vignettes and skits. The filmmakers appear in some of them. It truly is innovative. It’s also entertaining.Check out the full article and Q&A HERE
