We saw the film WOMEN TALKING and we couldn’t rest until we had the chance to speak with the genius who wrote, directed, and is nominated for an Oscar for it: Sarah Polley.
This conversation is about hope, survival, imagination, and revolution. It’s about burning it all down and building from the ashes.
Please listen to this conversation and then please watch the film. You will be powerfully changed.
