2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Stephanie will organize several live screenings and Q&A sessions around her short film Vessel. The short stars an entirely female cast and surrounds Molly, a woman haunted by dreams, who is convinced that something is wrong with her pregnancy. Inspired by the research of Temple University professor Dr. David M. Jacobs, who discovered a series of women who all became pregnant after having terrible abduction dreams, Stephanie will use the film as a tool to inspire discussions about the shame and isolation that comes from rape, miscarriage, and abortion; build community with other local female science fiction lovers; and combat misogyny in popular sci-fi culture.
