What happens when a woman cannot fulfill the traditional role of motherhood in a culture which has inextricably – and unfairly – intertwined that role with womanhood? MAXINE imagines one woman’s struggle to find her place in the world, when the conventional pathway has been closed to her.
Currently in pre-production, MAXINE is a period drama prequel to L. E. Bond’s Milos Forman Fund Award winning feature screenplay, MAX BECKER.
MAXINE is the inaugural project of A Lady Macbeth Initiative, a new not-for-profit organization which flips the paradigm and fills the gap for women in film on the micro level! For more information visit: www.ladymac.org
Generations of women have fought against inequality in the workplace and the culture at large. Without the set-backs and successes of the women who came before, we wouldn't have gotten as far we have. And yet, we must remember that the fight for equality does not end or begin with the movement of the day.
