In honor of #WomensHistoryMonth, check out this roundup of films from PBS that center on women's experiences in history. In keeping with the month's theme of #celebratewomen, we'd like to give a shout-out to two women featured in The Disrupted Cheryl and Melissa, who demonstrate strength and determination.

Cheryl rallies her fellow Tampa rideshare drivers to demand the fair pay workers deserve - here she is pictured [RIGHT] at one of the many protests she led.

Melissa is the rock of her family who supports her husband, Pete, on his journey to reinvent himself after losing his 3M factory job - here she is pictured [LEFT] with Pete at his graduation from HVAC school.

“Arguably the most important film I’ve encountered in 2020 thus far.” - Mountain Xpress

The positive response to The Disrupted means so much, after 3 years in the making. The film explores the lives of a farmer in #Kansas, a laid-off factory worker in #Ohio, and an #Uberdriver in #Florida. And while their circumstances may seem different, they each reveal a collective American experience of financial challenge, family resilience, and the quest for the purpose and dignity of work.

He's an American icon, but how much do you know about #HenryFord?

Henry Ford, a PBS and GBH film directed by Sarah C**t and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities explores the life of America’s pre-eminent businessman and one of the most influential Americans of the twentieth century.

It tells the story of Ford’s role in the creation of the #ModelT, the durable and low-priced car that helped put America on wheels; the assembly line, which revolutionized the industrial world; and the Five Dollar Day, which laid the foundation for a prosperous #Americanmiddleclass.

You can watch the film here: https://www.amazon.com/American-Experience.../dp/B00AJER44M

As we close out the year, we at #SarahC**tProductions wanted to say a big thank you for all the support!

Making films is never easy … throw in a pandemic and it seems near impossible. When SCP was founded a decade ago, we were lucky to (and cont. to be lucky to) create films for #AmericanExperience history series, like #WeShallRemain, #ThePolioCrusade, #HenryFord, #WaltDisney, and #TheGildedAge.

This year was especially significant as we released our first independent feature film, The Disrupted (aptly titled). With your support & encouragement along the way, we were able to bring the forgotten voices of working Americans to light and spark conversations around #incomeinequality and the #AmericanDream.

Happy Holidays and we are wishing you all a safe and healthy 2021.

With gratitude,
Sarah & the SCP team

Who else has post-election fatigue?! 👋

Coming off of the #2020PresidentialRace we're reminded of our time filming #TrueBeliever, when we followed a progressive evangelical and lifelong Republican Robb Ryerse's run for Congress.

Refusing to take corporate donations to raise the $15K required to get on the Republican ballot, Robb's story illuminates the barriers that prevent average Americans from running for office.

The American Experience: Walt Disney

To commemorate #WaltDisney's birthday month, we thought we'd throw out some stats!

By 1966, the year he died from lung cancer, Walt Disney was everywhere: 240 million people saw a Disney movie, 150 million read a Disney comic strip, 100 million tuned in weekly to a Disney television program, 80 million watched a Disney educational film, 80 million read a Disney book, 80 million bought Disney merchandise, 50 million listened to a Disney record, and close to 7 million visited Disneyland. No one before or since has held such a commanding place in American life.

Walt Disney, a 4-hour film directed by Sarah C**t for WGBH/Boston - Media Access Group's American Experience, explores the life of the visionary animator, storyteller, and entrepreneur whose influence on American culture was – and continues to be – more profound than most presidents.

The Gilded Age

Streaming now onPBS #TheGildedAge, directed by Sarah C**t, presents a compelling and complex story of one of the most convulsive and transformative eras in American history.

As national wealth expanded in the late 19th century, two classes rose simultaneously, separated by a gulf of experience and circumstance. These disparities sparked passionate and violent debate over questions still being asked today about wealth distribution, the role of government, and the balance of economic growth and social justice.

Cheryl didn't plan on becoming a driver for Uber and Lyft. She spent years working her way up in the mortgage industry as a single mother raising three kids. But her career came to an abrupt halt in 2008 when the crash bankrupted her employer. Hard work doesn't always result in living the American Dream.
