Seneca Falls

Seneca Falls takes viewers on a life-changing journey with nine high school girls bound for the birthplace of women’s rights in America. Part teenage road trip, part shocking history lesson, the film is, above all, an awakening of young hearts and minds. This documentary breathes life and relevance into a revolutionary act barely mentioned in history books: America’s first women’s rights convention, a public protest held in Seneca Falls, New York in 1848.

 

My Americana-leaning score draws largely from an acoustic pallet: guitar, autoharp, organ, strings, and voice. This score won Best Score/Soundtrack at the 2010 Los Angeles Reel Film Festival. Look for at festivals and check back about dvd release.
