SHE - Film Premiere at the Strand!

July 9, 2022

Location:
The Strand, Plattsburgh

Every year over 300,000 women go missing in the United States. There are  currently over 2600 Jane Does waiting to be identified. Even during the  height of the #metoo movement when sexual harassment and violence  against women was in the news every day the stories of these women still  went untold.

She is a full-length documentary about  writer Aimée Baker and her award-winning poetry collection Doe. Doe is her  quest to give voice to the missing and unidentified women of the United  States. Baker researched police reports missing persons fliers and news  articles to create each poem. The fifty poems in this collection attempt  to bear witness to their stories as an act of remembrance and activism.

Many films are created about murderers  and serial killers but few center the stories of the victims. She explores  some of the cases in Doe giving background of the events and the women  but never mentioning the perpetrators names.

Every day that passes another woman  goes missing another body is found. The few that make it to the top of our  newsfeed capture the nation’s attention. This film brings the same  attention to some of the stories that never made it to the news.
