What people are saying about Fundamental:
Latanya Mapp Frett, President and CEO of Global Fund for Women:
“Global Fund for Women is proud to help power feminist movements – those depicted in Fundamental and beyond – working to radically alter the course of history for women and girls—and all historically marginalized people and communities globally. The courageous activists in Fundamental are mobilizing to write new futures for themselves, their communities, and the world. We hope these films will activate a new wave of gender justice advocates to join them.”
Academy Award-winning director, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy:
“The idea is to start important discourse about what it means to be an activist today, to inspire others to become activists, to show them the face of activists, and to take them into the minds of these people. This is more than just a documentary series. It’s meant to educate and empower the next generation.”
