Emmy-winning documentarian, Sarah Moshman, is drawn to stories of women overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles. We’ll talk about her three docs: The Empowerment Project: Ordinary Women Doing Extraordinary Things, Losing Sight of Shore about four women rowing to Australia, and Nevertheless following seven people grappling with sexual harassment claims in work or school. We’ll also talk about what’s next for her and how her new book, Empowered Filmmaking: How to Make a Documentary on Your Own Terms, can help with what’s next for you.

And of course, Sarah's films Losing Sight of Shore, The Empowerment Project, Nevertheless, her MovieMaker Magazine article on directing Losing Sight of Shore, and her great new book: Empowered Filmmaking.
