    From CWC website:

    While at Fauci this past weekend, we saw this trailer and thought this documentary looked amazing! It looks powerful, emotional and inspiring.

    Come see this documentary about local Cincinnati black women who have overcome adversity and challenges, internal and external. These women's journey to overcome self sabotoge is a lesson for all of us.

    "BOSS, the documentary by healthcare consultant Ashley Glass, was made with support from All-In Cincinnati and Black Art Speaks. In the film Ashley shares stories from black women holding leadership positions in the community – a group she describes as striving to Bravely Overcome Self-Sabotage, hence the film title “BOSS.” Her subjects represent a cross section of professions – educators, healthcare administrators, small business owners, activists and entrepreneurs – working to overcome external and internal adversity.

    This is a work-in-progress. Ashley’s debut documentary explores “imposter syndrome” – a set of self-defeating behaviors including feelings of doubt and inadequacy, that can produce negative outcomes impacting self-esteem, relationships, and careers. The syndrome, she says, is universal, transcending race, gender and socio-economic status. Trrough the heartfelt stories presented in the film we will learn how regular people overcame adversity to make significant contributions to the community.

    To empower others, Ashley believes the inspiring stories of these women should be shared. In the post-film discussion, Ashley and cast members will discuss the filmmaking and life experiences that brought these stories to the screen. The audience is invited to offer their observations and suggestions – what works, what doesn’t – how to better craft a compelling message that will improve the quality of life and mental health for all women."

    Meet in front of the Cinema at 6:45 so we can all sit together-as together as social distancing allows anyhow.

    Come out and support our local black community, a local film maker, and a local small independant theater/non-profit.
