Film Groupies Make a Difference: Support The Red Suitcase on Indiegogo

December 5, 2013

The buzz is building among women over fifty. We’re sensing it’s time to step up to the plate and get behind our beliefs and values out in the world, and we’re doing it more and more every day. The growing support for the film, The Red Suitcase, is just one example.

We know and understand that the force and intent behind a “good” movie, will always will be a force that is at its base is a creative one. A good movie has a story to tell and does it in such a way that in watching it unfold on screen we are in some way changed.

Today’s focus by the film industry on making as much money as possible, in as little time as possible, has nothing whatsoever to do with art, or expression, or even story. It also rarely has anything to do with women over fifty.

That’s why I am lending my support to The Red Suitcase. It’s a film that is at it’s core, a story, and one that matters deeply to people like you and me. The sad truth is, however, it will not happen without our support. The world just doesn’t care enough right now to lend its support and resources to such a story, but we do, and it’s becoming clearer with every donation that we have the will, the power and resources to make it happen. This isn’t just about this one film, it’s about all the films like it that are gathering dust in the hearts of the creators. Let’s change a little corner of the world together.

A heartfelt thank you to all of you who have already contributed. Together, we will make this happen. Dorothy

That’s how I felt when I heard about The Red Suitcase, a mother/daughter road movie in development about a 66-year-old woman who, with her grown daughter’s help, has to find the courage to start her life over. The film is based on a true story about the filmmaker’s mother, who suddenly found herself alone and penniless after her husband of 35 years walked out of her life, and it stars Kathleen Chalfant and Harris Yulin

Writer/producer Dana White writes,

It makes me angry that many women today, as they grow in years, are becoming more and more marginalized from our mainstream culture. My film is an attempt to both entertain (there are heaps of laughs and adventures in this film by the way), and to illuminate what I feel is a dark…
