In keeping with the “do-it-her-way-ethos”, writer/director/producer Marina Rice Bader gave her brand new film, Ava’s Impossible Things, its worldwide release as a rental on Vimeo on July 17th, the day after its Outfest screening.
The talented filmmaker is no stranger to this innovative strategy having released her Anatomy of a Love Seen much the same way in 2014. Gravitas Ventures will again join the team to take Ava’s Impossible Things to all other VOD and streaming platforms in the fall.
Fans around the world are now able to rent the film on Vimeo on any Internet-capable device for only $5.00 for a 48-hour rental period.
Subtitled versions for a number of foreign languages are also available including Spanish, Portuguese, French and German.
Ava’s Impossible Things is the first film to receive an investment from Vimeo’s “Share the Screen” female filmmaking fund, which was launched at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival to support emerging female voices in film.
The heart-wrenching tale tells the story of Ava and her mother Faye, bonded by many things…unconditional love, a passion for the arts, a belief that magic exists, and an insidious disease that will one day end both their lives.
If it is the year of the woman, it is definitely Marina’s time.
There’s so much talk about the gender inequality in the entertainment industry and how there’s a lack of female directors but Bader is not just commiserating about it.
Instead of letting her frustration sap her productivity, she did something about it and gave it a solution: make movies!
Set on amplifying women’s voices and challenging the status quo – not just for the “L” in the LGBT but generally speaking for women in entertainment, Bader has become a role model and an inspiration for us all.
