The Making of a Movie All About Real Mermaids.
Meet Ali Weinstein, the director of a new documentary titled Mermaids. A feature documentary about the powerful allure of a universal myth, Mermaids immerses audiences in a world where fantasies come to life. Following the stories of five extraordinary tail-donning women who are part of a growing “mermaiding” subculture, audiences voyage between mermaid theme parks, conventions, tail-making studios, and deep into the ocean where transforming into the empowered icon of the mermaid is possible.
We chat about the inspiration behind the film, the filmmaking journey, the global mermaid community, how mermaiding helps people heal and transcend difficult pasts, and why mermaids are trending. Mermaids featured in the film include: Cookie and Ralph of The Harlem Mermaid, The Weeki Wachee Mermaids, Laurie and Rachel of Mermaid and Mom, Mermaid Julz, and the Dive Bar Mermaids.
See Mermaids in the Buffalo Film Festival on October 6th!
