Edith and the Riot

Edith and the Riot from Ted Fisher on Vimeo.

Here is the first trailer for "Edith and the Riot," a short documentary I am developing on Edith Pechey.
Blocked from a scholarship she had earned and a degree she had worked for, Edith Pechey fought against rigid institutions, powerful men, and a rioting crowd of male students to become one of the first female doctors. Edith and the Riot is a fifteen-minute social justice documentary following contemporary women as they uncover Edith’s lost history while facing their own parallel challenges.
