feminism never made me hate men
men’s behavior made me hate men
me: hey i’m kinda good at this writing thing
*reads other people’s writing*
me: i am a literary potato
Why people ask me shit like “how was work?” or “how is school?” like work is work, school is school, I would rather be on a yacht right now while gettin some dick but here I am
Today a guy from my preproduction class turned to me in the line at the bookstore during break to tell me I look like the girl in the Wendy’s commercials and I found out that that is how I am known by people in the program who do not know my name. They literally call me “girl who looks like the girl in the Wendy’s commercials”.
Native Filmmakers Shoot Dystopian Drama on Pine Ridge Reservation
It’s 2085 on Pine Ridge. The reservation has been quarantined and borders guarded by the military for 30 years. Sparked by the ramifications of the Keystone XL pipeline, the war between the government and the insurgency lasted for eight years and resulted in the dystopian setting that provides the background for "The People," the inaugural project from Indigene Studios.
Based out of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Indigene Studios was co-founded in April 2014 by Willi White, Oglala Lakota, and Angel White Eyes, Oglala Lakota and Ojibwa.
“This is our way of giving back to our communities but also expressing ourselves,” White said. “Non-Natives always come here and sell the same narrative to the mainstream media. We want to change that narrative and give a voice to the stories that are already here.”
