A Candid Conversation about Consent with Filmmaker Jessiline Berry.
Sometimes we book JoyRide guests way in advance, and sometimes a person just magically shows up with a serendipitous topic. This week's show is a perfect example. Last week we had Dr. Jennifer Berry on the show, and as we were leaving the studio she mentioned that her sister Jessaline was in town from LA and was interested in talking to us about her latest film project. Seems she'd written a movie script in ONE night... basically unheard of! This got our attention as we love the idea of channeled information or beautiful "downloads." Jennifer told us a little about the script and made the introduction.
She now works as a Producer, Writer, Director, Script Consultant and Instructor, and founded FemmeMaker Productions to be a safe space for champions of women in film and television to promote their work. She's worked on projects ranging in content from experimental and narrative short films to documentary and entertainment television.
Please hop in and fasten your seatbelt so we can get on with this amazing JoyRide!
Synopsis: Just three hours ago, they were strangers at a party; now Will is stopping Rayna from getting into an Uber so she can spend the night getting into him. The two "could be" lovers go on a moonlit adventure through the streets of LA, falling into mischief and, perhaps, something like love. But by morning’s light, Rayna will know Will all too well. For better. Or for worse.
"We are producing, A Night to Remember, as a way to start a conversation about YES is YES consent. Statistics show that 1 out of 6 women has been a victim of rape, 84% of rape victims knew their attackers, and 84% of men who've been involved in a date rape did not realize that what they did met the legal definition of date rape. A Night to Remember wants these statics to change, and we hope you will help." Jessiline Berry
