We’re thrilled over here in Aggregate land to announce that we’re working with Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker David France to develop and run the social impact campaign in support of his new film about trans rights pioneers Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson. We’re super fans of David’s first film, How to Survive a Plague, and it was our fandom that – in part – contributed to having this opportunity. David knew we were a passionate group and that we understand what he is trying to do: tell stories about those who are not widely known, but should be because they changed the world – for all of us and for the better. Plus, we wrote a kick ass proposal.
The film is still in production; they will begin editing this spring. Aggregate’s work will involve working with the Sylvia & Marsha (working title) team – which includes producers Kim Reed (Prodigal Sons) and L.A. Teodosio (Love is Strange) – to create and implement the social impact outreach strategy, develop and manage the film’s advisory group and organizational partnerships, raise funding for the campaign, and more.
We’ll keep you posted on our progress and look forward to seeing you when the film premieres.
