Perspectives Leadership Academy Seniors Meet Empowerment Project Filmmakers

March 11, 2015

Lindsey Schwartz, a teacher and peace ambassador at Perspectives Leadership Academy, organized a screening of the Empowerment Project film for the entire senior class.

The students watched the 50-minute version of the film and then participated in a Q&A with the filmmakers Dana Michelle and Sarah Mosh.

The Empowerment Project is the incredible journey of a crew of female filmmakers driving across America to encourage, empower, and inspire the next generation of strong women to go after their career ambitions.

Driving over 7,000 miles from Los Angeles to New York over the course of 30 days, the documentary spotlights 17 positive and powerful women leaders across a variety of lifestyles and industries.

In celebration of the all-female focus in front of and behind the camera, the filmmakers turned the cameras on themselves, capturing their transformational journey.

The film challenges the audience to ask themselves, "What would you do if you weren't afraid to fail?"
