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.

Lone Star Screening #LSFF

My short documentary "Icarus in Fort Worth" screens Saturday morning at 10 a.m. at the Lone Star Film Festival in Fort Worth, Texas. It's in the program "A Little Taste of Texas & More [Part 2] (Short Films)."

The film's logline is:

A Texas daredevil faces danger to become a wingwalker and stunt pilot, risking everything to expand his fame and build a Hollywood movie career. The true story of Ormer Locklear, the greatest pilot you've never heard of.

It features the voice of Joshua Sherman.
