The Goddess Project: What It's Like to Cross the Country Filming Women
In the summer of 2012, Holli Rae and Sara Landas criss-crossed the United States in an amazing painted bus. Their goal was to interview women who, as they say, "are committed to transforming themselves and the world around them"—but it's clear that they also transformed themselves and the world they encountered in their journey.
The result of their trip: The Goddess Project, a beautifully shot documentary film in progress. Here's a sneak peek:
I caught up with Sara and Holli, who are in the final stages of fundraising to get their film completed and distributed.
Julie Ross Godar: How did the idea of a road trip come to you? How did you plan your itinerary? And what kind of response did your bus get?
The Goddess Project: As artists and activists, we wanted to see a broader spectrum of empowered female role models in the media. We felt frustrated by the constant bombardment of the same stereotypical roles and decided to hit the road to document real life stories of inspiring women across America with a passion for the life they live!
