About WHO SHE IS:
Say my name and I will live forever....Sheila. Lela. Jocelyn. Abbi. These are the women hidden within the statistics of the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) epidemic in the U.S. Meet them. See them. Say their names. They are “Who She Is”.
WHO SHE IS tells the story of four individual Wyoming women caught in the MMIW epidemic. By bringing these missing women to life on screen, through animation and first-person storytelling, the documentary aims to humanize the people behind the statistics. Through these women, the documentary hopes to shine a light on the wider MMIW epidemic and gendered violence. The film was Co-Directed and Co-Produced by Wyoming-based filmmakers, Jordan Dresser and Sophie Barksdale and produced by Caldera Productions. The film was made possible by funding from the Wyoming Division of Victim Services on behalf of the Wyoming Missing & Murdered Indigenous Persons Task Force.
