Women2drive to get Wal-Mart

Women2drive protestThe recent protest on Friday by Saudi Arabia women in what the New York Times called “random acts of women driving” follows the May 22 arrest of Manal al-Sharif, a 32-year-old Saudi woman who posted a video of herself driving on YouTube. It is 2011 and woman still can’t drive a car nor get equal pay. The recent decision on Dukes v. Wal-Mart by the U.S. Supreme Court is a victory for Wall Street over Main Street at the expense of women.

Arcelia Hurtado, executive director of ERA, says after 10 years of taking on the world’s largest retailer, they’re not giving up. “The women [of Walmart] have been speaking for the rest of us for the last 10 years. Speak up for your rights. We won’t make progress unless people have the courage to stand up and speak out.”

Whole Foods Parking Lot

Another way of working outside the “Hollywood” model is to create a collective of your choice. A collective is a viable and exciting paradigm to work in, very exciting.

Fog and Smog is a creative collective of culture vultures from the SF Bay Area and Los Angeles. Some of us work as composers, some as film editors, producers, designers, deejays, animators, photographers, etc.
Our first project, “Whole Foods Parking Lot” was written produced and performed by DJDave aka David Wittman, and directed by George Woolley with Pedram Torbati. Jake Pushinsky cut it, and both Ben Kahle and Ben Marlbrough appear in supporting roles. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.
