A documentary about silent film writer, director, and star, Nell Shipman.

The film reveals the forgotten legacy of Shipman and a generation of female silent film pioneers. The documentary includes rare footage of these artists, including minority filmmakers, Zora Neale Hurston and Miriam Wong. Geena Davis and female directors discuss gender-inequities Nell and her counterparts faced that perpetuate in today’s film industry.
