Welcome to the latest Wonderful Women with the award winning filmmaker, Debbie Shuter. Debbie has directed and produced numerous documentaries and feature films including 'Beigles Already' (her first film) - a short documentary for BBC1, 'Educating Haji' - BBC1, 'St Lukes' - Cutting Edge C4 and 'The Veteran' - a feature film starring Brian Cox and Toby Kebbell.
I've pondered a while whether I should write this post, air my views and explore a subject that frankly, needs more airing and exploring. A grey area I've shied away from writing. For fear of being judged, of being considered 'too white' to have experienced racism, for fear of not being taken seriously.
Welcome back people, it's #brilliantblogposts time again! Thanks so much for all the amazing posts linked up last week and for making this linky FLY!
Please don't judge me... As much as I love experimental European films and conceptual art (I do), I need to wind down watching mind numbing escapist crap sometimes. What? No judgement remember.
Just over a week ago, (yes it's taken me that long to write this)- I won an award! *Jumps in the air Rocky style at the memory. It was for the Square Mile 30 Under 30 London Talent Awards to be exact and I won my category: Media, Entertainment and the Arts.
In light of the awards' season: the Baftas and Oscars out there for the film industry, I started to ponder-where are the awards for all the amazing mothers out there-because you totally and utterly deserve it.
