Bloom - A Women's Empowerment Film

Hello everyone!

Up and coming female Producers Andrea Bucko, Narina Jabari and Therés Amee have partnered to create a beautiful and poignant short film, and are reaching out to our incredible communities both on the ground and online in order to complete it in time for its premiere on March 12th, 2018 in NYC.

We are so humbled by the response it’s garnered so far, for the powerhouse team of producers and artists working to see it through, and the movement towards equality and empowerment of every human that is at its core.

The film has blossomed into something bigger than anyone had anticipated and we are eager to keep the momentum going :)

IMPACT

The film will be screened at the inaugural Women Illuminate Film Festival in March of 2018, held by G.W.E.N, an internationally recognized non-profit organization, and in partnership with the UN’s Commission on The Status of Women, where the film’s producers will have the honour of participating in a panel as delegates.

It will be distributed by Amazon, Apple TV and Roku, as well as further submitted to recognized and influential film festivals around the world.

Additionally, the film, its team and the outreach initiatives inherent to it’s creation will be featured in Mode Culture magazine.

STORY

Bloom is a hauntingly beautiful story of rebirth in a time when gender roles and personal identity has been thrust into limelight. Beginning with the lifeless bodies of ten women washed up on a deserted shore, the film takes its viewers on a visceral experience that acknowledges the dark, buried realities of our past and imagines an awakened new future. One that is united, empowered and set free.

Global Women’s Empowerment Network is a non-profit entertainment platform for social good.
