I am the producer/director of a documentary based on the reaction of viewers in 1991 to 'Thelma & Louise,' which I refer to as the 'mother' film. It was the seedbed for 'Catching Sight of Thelma & Louise.' Both films are about women's experience in the world. Both films deal with sexual harassment and sexual assault. Given stories in the daily news about these subjects, it is uncanny how 'Catching Sight' captures the zeitgeist in the most authentic and intimate way. These are issues that call all of us to come together to work toward a resolution.
