Film Lab will also be screening their television pilot, "Mirror Mirror," addressing gender bias through the lens of a comedy sitcom on December 14th as part of the International Human Rights Film Festival ('IHRAF"). IHRAF Producer Thomas Block commented, "The International Human Rights Art Festival is thrilled to welcome Film Lab's "Mirror/Mirror." Following in the footsteps of Festival Godfather Norman Lear -- who produced a series of sitcoms in the 1970s at the intersection of activism and popular culture -- we feel that Film Lab's work follows this same path.
Audience is vital to activist art, and the Film Lab and "Mirror Mirror" use a popular platform and deeply felt art to discuss a issue of concert to all of us: gender bias women, and particularly women of color, endure every day in the workplace." Actor Jennifer Betit Yen added, "[T]his comedic sitcom allows the very complicated issue of gender bias to become more accessible and understandable."
