Women You Should Know is excited and honored to be hosting the New York City screening of the highly acclaimed documentary The Empowerment Project. The inspiring night will kick-off with a pre-party, followed immediately by the screening, and will close with an engaging chat lead by our special guests, the film’s Writer/Director Sarah Moshman and Producer Dana Michelle Cook.
The WYSKy film captures the incredible journey of 5 female filmmakers (Sarah and Dana, along with Alana Fickes, Ashley Hammen, and Vanessa Crocini) as they drive across America to document the inspiring lives of 17 positive and powerful women leaders from a variety of lifestyles and industries, all with the goal of encouraging and empowering the next generation of strong women through their stories.
Road tripping over 7,000 miles from Los Angeles to New York over the course of 30 days, the filmmakers spotlight a television producer, a mathematician, a pilot, a biologist, a brewmaster, a professional athlete, a ballerina, a lawyer, a chef, an architect, a social entrepreneur, a Congresswoman, a fashion stylist, a Four Star Admiral in the US Navy, an astronaut, Miss USA 2012, and a gospel theatre director. Along the way, Sarah, Dana, Alana, Ashley, and Vanessa get the incredible opportunity to spend a day in each woman’s shoes.
In the end, the filmmakers turn the cameras on themselves, capturing their own transformational journeys, and then challenge the audience to ask themselves… “What would you do if you weren’t afraid to fail?”
