A powerful statement about gender in the women’s locker room.
Farm above Pt. Vicente. Most of the farms were run by Japanese Americans who were imprisoned ("interned") during the war and lost their land. I remember a couple of my friends crying in 8th grade when we learned about it in history class—they werent learning because it was their families.
PV history covers so many racisms—the Spaniards killing the indigeneous people and taking the land, the whites taking it from the Spaniards, the internment of the Japanese, the laws keeping out Jews and blacks. It’s horrific, in such a beautiful, beautiful place.

About the grant:
After cancer ended Sarah Jacobson’s life in 2004, her mother Ruth and Sam Green established the Sarah Jacobson Film Grant to support young women “whose work embodies some of the things Sarah stood for: a fierce DIY approach to filmmaking, a radical social critique, and thoroughly underground sensibility.”
“I consider myself a feminist filmmaker, definitely. The whole reason I got into film was because I never saw cool girls in films that I liked. I have no fear of the word ‘feminist.’ I know that that has certain negative connotations to some people, but then why should I let other people’s stupidity bully what I want to do, right? To me, feminism means that I should have an equal opportunity to do what I want to do as a woman. I don’t want to be better than men, I don’t want to shut men up. It’s like, look, you’ve got your little thing over here, you’ve got your B-movie aesthetic, and I’ve got my interpretation of it that girls can enjoy, too, so you don’t always have to watch the bimbo get raped or slashed or stalked or whatever.” -Sarah Jacobson
