About the film:
In a half-changed world, women often feel they need to choose: mothering or working? Your children’s well-being or your own? Who Does She Think She Is?, a documentary by Academy Award winning (Born into Brothels) filmmaker Pamela Tanner Boll, features five fierce women who refuse to choose. Through their lives, we explore some of the most problematic intersections of our time: mothering and creativity, partnering and independence, economics and art. The film invites us to consider both ancient legacies of women worshipped as cultural muses and more modern times where most people can’t even name a handful of female artists.
