The Film "Frisky" by Filmmaker Claudia Pickering -- VOD Release 3/14/17

Movies by women and about women are such a great thing to celebrate. The stories many times display our sisterhood and support of one another. The film, Frisky by Claudia Pickering is a perfect example of this case.  

Frisky is a comedy about two twenty-somethings who move to San Francisco to chase their career, but end up chasing tail instead. The story begins when two twenty-something women move back to San Francisco, where they had met on exchange years earlier, their high career aspirations quickly become sidelined by their sexual interests. While wildly crass and charismatic in their public personas, they are in fact fundamentally at odds on many levels.

Their opposing beliefs surrounding responsibility and romance, combined with their close quarters while crashing in an acquaintance's living room, find them thrust onto a fast track to discovering what their friendship is really made of. Based on true events, Frisky is an honest, tongue-in-cheek look at what it is to be a woman in the limbo years between college and "the real world".

10 things you need to know about the film:

2.    Being released through Gravitas Ventures in US and Canada on March 14 (See website for platforms)
3.    All-female production crew (aside from a stand-in sound guy for a couple of days)
4.    A story about beautiful, strong female friendship.
5.    Uh, it's hilarious.
6.    Set in San Francisco, guerilla shoot.
7.    Almost got shut down by the cops as neighbors thought they were shooting an 'adult film'
8.    All indie musicians on the soundtrack.
9.    Based on true events.

Frisky is written, produced, directed (and starring!) first-time filmmaker Claudia Pickering, this is a powerhouse comedy with a beautiful female friendship at its core. Based on true events, Frisky was shot in San Francisco by a team of independent filmmakers.

Claudia has gone on to launch a film-festival-come-great-excuse-for-a-good-party called Freshflix in Sydney, Australia, in 2016, which has quickly become a sell-out quarterly film festival celebrating short and long form content from all over the world. It’s incredible to witness what this filmmaking community has achieved in such a small amount of time as Freshflix events have injected life into not only the region’s filmmaking community, but a wider audience of curious and passionate fans.

    Why hasn't the U.S. ratify CEDAW yet?

    President Carter sent CEDAW to the U.S. Senate for advice and consent in 1980. It remains in the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. The Senate has held hearings on CEDAW five times in the past 25 years but failed each time to bring the treaty to a vote on the floor. Why?
    Conservative organizations, such as the Home School Legal Defense Associationand Concerned Women for America, vehemently oppose the ratification of all human rights treaties. They insist that human rights treaties violate American sovereignty. Thirty-eight Republican senators demonstrated this last December, when they refused to join their more moderate colleagues in ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
    CEDAW establishes the moral, civic and political equality of women and protects women's right to be free from discrimination and violence. Thanks to CEDAW, these values have diffused around the world. 
    Conservative critics are wrong when they claim that CEDAW reflects radical feminist views. In fact, a Republican woman, Nixon appointee Patricia Hutar, persuaded the United Nations to draft CEDAW. On January 30, 1974, President Nixon called for the U.S. government to commemorate International Women's Year at all levels.

    Has anyone used an air fryer?

    Top Answer

    At first glance, deep fryers and air fryers seem quite similar. Both give regular food (such as veggies or pieces of meat) a delicious taste and crunchy exterior. However, the method a deep fryer uses (dunking food into a large amount of hot oil) is much different from that of an air fryer, which coats food with a little bit of oil then blasts it with hot air. If you love traditional fried food, the deep fryer could be your best bet. If you’re a bit more health conscious and want to achieve similar results without entirely giving up that distinctive fried taste and texture, an air fryer could be the optimal choice.
