Want to Actually DO Something? Support A Period Film!

Yeah. You read that right. DirActor Kristine Gerolaga is making a movie that we can all relate to, in one way or another. She's making a movie about periods. A period film, if you will. Why is this important and noteworthy? Well, how many movies can you think of that explicitly deal with menstruation?

Carrie. Pitch Black. Umm...Ginger Snaps?

Anyway, this movie, which is currently titled A Period Film, seeks to rectify some of that. But mostly, it's a really funny comedy about two women who aren't just sitting around talking about their relationships or the yogurt they just bought and how much better their poop will be after they've eaten it.* It's about women and friendship and terror and blood and screaming. Sounds, awesome, right?



It's also an independent film written by, directed by, and starring women. Women of color, even! So even if the idea of a movie about periods makes you feel all icky inside, please consider helping these guys out. This is the indiest of indies, and they need some monetary support to get this puppy off the ground.

You can check out their indiegogo campaign here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/a-period-film.

*I actually shouldn't rag on those commercials so much. I do, in fact, buy yogurt, and my friends and I have been known to sit around and talk about poop. Because we're grownups.
