As I have addressed before on this website, a feature documentary is in the process of being made about the men’s movement, including A Voice for Men. What I have not been able to disclose until now was who was making the film.
The film is still a work in process. However, I can let the cat out of the bag at this point.
Cassie Jaye is a San Francisco Bay Area documentary filmmaker who has won numerous awards for her work, including the Idyllwild International Festival and the Bare Bones Film Festival. She also won Best Documentary Film in her directorial debut for, “Daddy I Do” at the 2010 Cannes Independent Film Festival in France.
Her new film about the men’s movement is titled, “The Red Pill,” and plans are for it to be released in early 2015.
Jaye was recently interviewed on the Marilu Henner Show, which you can listen to here. Her (too short) discussion about The Red Pill starts at about 13:45.
Jaye’s production company, Jaybird Productions, has just opened a website for the movie. It is so new, in fact, that it is still under construction. But you take a look at it here.
Apparently, the experience of filming The Red Pill and interviewing so many people in the movement has been transformative for the young filmmaker. A note from the web page describes the movie, in part, as follows:
From the producers who brought you, “Daddy I Do” and “The Right to Love: An American Family”, a young feminist explores the men’s rights movement and begins to challenge her own beliefs in “The Red Pill.”
Cassie Jaye will also be attending and filming at the First International Conference on Men’s Issues in Detroit in June. She has asked me to inform readers that she will continue to conduct interviews there and extends an invitation to MHRAs who want to share their ideas with her on camera.
Finally, I will be interviewing Cassie Jaye live in a Google Hangout on Wednesday, March 19, at 4:00 PM Pacific, 6 Central and 7 Eastern Time here at A Voice for Men. An announcement about that will be posted Tuesday in the Hangout section of the site.
