As you may have noticed, we’ve been on hiatus considerably longer than expected. Then again, very little in 2020 has transpired as any of us has expected, which is why we here at BTB have decided it’s time to rejoin the public discourse and examine how we can all contribute to the enduring fight for universal social justice in our own small ways.
That said, we’re back, not with a vengeance, but with great hope and determination. In the coming months, we will continue to explore feminism and social justice in the context of film, adding additional formats of storytelling when it seems apropos. Given the mass confinement the world at large is currently experiencing, we imagine there’s more storytelling consumption happening on every level. But rather than relying on stories as merely a means of recreational escapism, let’s all strive to be more mindful than ever, utilizing storytelling as a means to achieve deeper understanding of our society and provide greater insight as we struggle to reshape an ailing world.
So, please—be safe, healthy, mindful, loving, productive, creative and, whenever possible, happy, as we navigate this unpredictable new territory together. Thanks for joining us on this journey.
Yours in Social Justice,
