I produced this trailer for Iron Ladies of Liberia for the nationally televised series Independent Lens on PBS, which is produced by the Independent Television Service (ITVS).
With unprecedented access, this intimate documentary goes behind the scenes with Africa’s first freely elected female head of state, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, president of Liberia. The film explores the challenges facing the new president and the extraordinary women surrounding her as they develop and implement policy to rebuild their ravaged country and prevent a descent back into civil war.
IRON LADIES OF LIBERIA premieres Tuesday, March 18 on Independent Lens, a weekly series airing on PBS. Hosted by Terrence Howard, the acclaimed series showcases powerful and innovative independent films. Presented by ITVS, INDEPENDENT LENS is broadcast on PBS stations nationwide.
