Spring News



Please check out the NEW two minute trailer for the film by clicking on the link below.  

Hello Everyone!

First, I want to thank you once again for your support and make sure everyone received their Kickstarter rewards. If you haven't yet received what you are due, please email me atmarytrunk@sbcglobal.net and I will remedy that situation right away. Many apologies for mix-ups.

Second I thought you all might enjoy some great links I've collected over the past few weeks. They are at the bottom of this newsletter. All of them are from the amazing blog brainpickings. If you don't already subscribe to it, click here to do just that.

DVD's are now available for sale on the website here or just click on the button above (BUY THE DVD). We have already had a few very successful screenings so far and more are coming up. 

The next one is Thursday, April 25th at 4:00 pm at the Pickford Auditorium at Claremont McKenna College.  Sponsored by the Berger Institute for Work, Family, and Children and The Center for Writing and Public Discourse.  This screening is free and open to the public.  

Another screening is scheduled for Thursday, May 9th at 7pm at Santa Monica College. Room 263 in the Humanities & Social Science Building. This event is hosted by Women, Action + Media LA. Also free and open to the public. 

I will be there for a Q & A at both screenings and possibly some of the women in the film will be there too. 

Huge thanks to Audrey Bilger, Janice Rhoshalle Littlejohn and Melanie Klein for organizing these screenings. Hope to see you there.

Please like the facebook page here to get the most recent information and specific details about future screenings.  And if you are not a subscriber of the newsletter please join by clicking here.

If you or an organization you are affiliated with would like to host a screening, please let me know. Maybe your school or college would be interested in hosting a screening as part of a classroom curriculum or department event. I would love to discuss it with you. On the website store page are some guidelines to organize just such an event at your school. Click here for details. And look under "Lost In Living" Educational DVD. Or read this:

How to Bring Lost In Living to your Campus

1)  Contacting your school's Office of Student Activities is generally a good place to start.  Each school is different, and the Office of Student Activities at your school may then refer you to another student group or academic department.

2)  You can also start by asking the department heads or professors of various academic departments in your school to inquire if there is a possibility of co-presenting or co-sponsoring the screening.

Lost In Living is particularly suited to classes in:
•  Women's Studies
•  Gender Studies
•  Sociology
•  Psychology
•  Film/Media Studies
•  Documentary Production

3)  You can also organize to have me speak with the film screening.  I normally charge a speaking fee per event but I am more than willing to work with the budgets of various student organizations and academic departments to coordinate a campus screening and presentation.  I am also available to skype with smaller groups.

I truly appreciate your help and participation. This film could not have been made without you. Please feel free to share this blog with friends!  Thank you.
