Director, Blood & Glory
“This story is very close to my heart because I’m a combat veteran myself. I joined the Army when I was 18 and deployed to Iraq when I was 21. Transitioning back to civilian life was difficult, but I was lucky to have a community and resources. Here in LA, we’ve seen a steady rise in the number of women who end up homeless after they leave the military. One day while volunteering on Skid Row, I saw a veteran walking down the street and she had a large period stain on her back. I was shocked and disheartened. That image buried itself in the filaments of my brain. It was then that I realized that when you’re homeless or living below the poverty line, lack of access to feminine hygiene products can really chip away at your dignity. I wrote Blood and Glory to explore this intersectionality of invisibility through film.”
This special event is co-produced by Pearl and Mingle. We can’t wait to share this story of female friendship and human resilience with you!
