LA Film Event: Sept. 19th, “Women of ’69 Unboxed”.
We’re so excited to launch The Three Tomatoes film series that celebrates women over 40 who are still very much underrepresented in films, even though we have powerful stories to tell.

The Women of ’69 UNBOXED. Evocative. Memorable. Photos that captured an era – and inspired a documentary. A group of women, college classmates at Skidmore Class of ‘69, who were both electrified and pummeled by the turbulent surf of the 60s, look back, then ahead, as they turn 65, ruminate on their heartaches and triumphs, and evaluate the “dowry” they’ll leave for future generations. Through intimate interviews with 19 of these women, the film focuses on these ordinary lives made extraordinary by the tumultuous times in which they lived.
A Lively Panel Discussion will immediately follow the film and will feature:
