Chicken & Egg
Chicken & Egg Pictures supports women non-fiction filmmakers whose diverse voices and dynamic storytelling have the power to catalyze change, at home and around the globe.
On August 20, 2014, Chicken & Egg Pictures welcomed the filmmakers behind 12 grantee films to Brooklyn for a three-day mentorship workshop. Attendees came from all corners of the globe, from Texas to Iran to South Africa to Poland, making this mentorship our most international one yet! Throughout the three-days, Creative Director Judith Helfand and Program Manager Iyabo Boyd, in partnership with some guest experts, walked the filmmakers through Branding, Press & Festival Strategy, and individual Editing Labs.
Directed by Catherine Gund, Born To Fly explores the evolution of choreographer Elizabeth Streb’s gravity-defying philosophy of movement, dance, and extreme action. Click here for the trailer and more information on the film.
