Fed up with her “Lame Duck” status, The Upstart decides to face down The Patriarch in this 1940’s feminist throw-down.” Created by an all-woman Canadian crew, the film explores the barriers, historic and contemporary, to women making films. With it’s short and unapologetic message, this film represents a metamorphosis for first time director Kate Felix as she transitions from ‘dreamer’ to ‘doer’ in the world of independent filmmaking.
