COLORADO SPRINGS — When Kathy Sparnins walked away from a movie pageant put on by Rocky Mountain Women’s Film, she had a single imagined in her head.
“I basically walked absent that weekend, went house, and told my husband, ‘I’m going to do a film'”, states Sparnins.
Sparnins directed, manufactured, and made the documentary Voices of Grief: Honoring the Sacred Journey. She labored with her neighbor in Woodland Park who transpired to be a videographer.
Sparnins dedicates her inspiration from Rocky Mountain Women’s Movie. The non-profit was developed by two Colorado Springs women in 1987 as a way to highlight ladies.
“The initial vision was to target on movies, exclusively by and about women of all ages, and that has expanded over time to consist of voices of ladies and other people that are normally unheard and unseen. And I imagine that is a substantial aspect of the value that we convey, is elevating these voices to a neighborhood in which they could possibly not if not be listened to”, claims Linda Broker, the Executive Director of the firm.
When she and Sparnins spoke alongside one another, they talked about the enthusiasm that goes into storytelling, and how satisfied they were to be there collectively.
“You know”, says Broker, “owning someone stroll absent from the festival, or from any of the screenings we host, with this form of reaction of ‘I’m heading to do something’, it is like the biggest achievement”.
