Productions, an informal partnership, is a research, production
and distribution team organized solely for this project.
Kathleen Laughlin is
an independent film/video producer with a background as a producer
at KTCA Public Television in St. Paul, MN, and many documentaries
on her resume. Terri Berthiaume
Hawthorne is an educator, scholar, artist, and administrator.
It has been her dream for years, to gather the stories of the
founding of the Battered Women's Movement and to capture this
wealth of information, history and inspiration onto videotape
while the elders in the story are still working, willing, and
able to talk to us on camera. Terri will assume the lead in research
gathering, community networking, and subject analysis, while Kathleen
will take the lead in production planning and execution.
Our production crews
have included many talented professional freelancers in the community.
Among them are: Susan Bacig, Rosemary Davis, Kay DiMarco, Matt
Ehling, Bob Foucault, Steve Kahlenbeck, Juli Manser, Ossian Or,
Roger Schmitz, Bob Vaaler, and volunteer production assistants
Karen Miller, Sonya 'Sonny' Tormoen and Alexis Cairn.
