Artemis Rising Foundation Supports:
PROJECT TEDWomen 2017: Bridges
Artemis Rising Partnered with Chicken & Egg Pictures to produce five original shorts, created and directed by women, for the 2017 TEDWomen conference in New Orleans. The films all focus around the conference’s theme, “Bridges.” Of the five shorts, two are currently available for viewing on Atlantic Selects. The first in the series, Lucy Walker’s THE BRIDGE POEM, intermixes Kate Rushin’s poem by the same name with 16mm footage of the collapse of the 1940 Tacoma Narrow Bridge to create a dynamic visual experience. BETWEEN EVERYTHING, the second in the series, explores the mutability of time experienced by the film’s director Nanfu Wang after the birth of her child.
“TedWomen gives a leg up to female storytellers with new creative voices. And, they support a variety of formats, not just full length features.” RKS
