How Licensing Works

We offer a tiered licensing and pricing system to make the film accessible to all types of organizations. The Screening Kit includes an unlimited public performance license at one facility—contact us about purchasing multiple kits at a discount. Keep in mind you are legally obligated to purchase the appropriate license to show the film at your institution.


This is an independent film, meaning it wasn’t produced by a large Hollywood production company. Instead, an individual, Vanessa LeMaire, took 5 years off work to complete this film, earning zero cash during that time. Your screening payment doesn’t even cover compensation, it goes towards financing your screening kit materials and reimbursing the 5-year out-of-pocket production costs.
