” #GirlTheWorld™© #CaliLili ; #ForYourAwardsConsideration #FYC2019 : #eVeNgodThisFemaleIsNotYetRated™ #CynAesthetiX™© #ClimateStrike #FridaysForFuture #ClimateAction + #GirlPower “©

” In 2012 I set out to make a Sustainable All female crew motion picture with an original soundtrack . ‘HandMadeToMakeADifference™ was one of my guiding methodologies along with ToyBoxTech™ Not quite a musical, but the soundtrack was literally ‘born’ with the screenplay + hand-made along with the production of the movie. I was very much aware that I was ‘composing’ + ‘designing’ along with screenplay-writing, directing, acting, rapping-singing+producing – so there’s def a ’21stCenturyGirl-rapper-rock-band‘ – aesthetic at work here – based on my methodologies in my book ‘The Declaration Of IndiePenDance™’ where I explore my film-making+music-making approach – I call it c.lili™ ‘s CynAesthetiX™ and it includes a variety of innovations cinematic+music aesthetics. As a young actress who’s taken the time to respect the history / HERstory of my craft – from the craftspersons’ perspective – I know that ‘innovation’ rests upon the past + is a bridge to the future.

Pushback came from several directions — on the all female crew idea – along with my non-conventional feminist – lgbtqia – interracial – climate- action subject matter — … I wasn’t planning to make a movie I’ve already seen – so it was a challenge!

With My Sisters – For My #Sisters : in my recent writings and explorations about feminism — I am finding it crucial for us to find out – not so much why men hurt women – but instead, why some women – hurt women –

including the fact that often, we women, hurt ourselves, it’s a vicious cycle – and by hurting our sisters, we are expressing our self hatred …

I explored this in my indie movie recently – but it was not until VERY recently that I fully understood the depth of how these incidents shape us from childhood, into our teenage years, school experiences and then –

importantly, as we enter the professional world and encounter the competitive forces from our sisters, which often lead women to do unspeakable things – things they write about and rail against as #feminists – but which they do to each other, sometimes unconsciously …

when I entered the ‘professional world,’ after earning my Master’s Degree at an impossibly young age — my work was publicly and brazenly plagiarized by a very famous “feminist” writer and teacher …

Most remarkable was the entitlement with which she lifted my writing and without crediting me, simply took it as her own.

This person espouses progressive values yet her actions, and worse – her reactions to my queries – had more in common with the politics of entitlement we witness today, than they do with any feminist theory —

When I spoke up about it, directly to her, in a vulnerable yet respectful manner – she shut it down, shut me down, ceased communications with me – and possibly did worse behind my back. It was in its own way – a “MeToo” moment. It was also oddly public and provable (still is), but no other woman backed me up – even though it was evident. The “clique” stuck together.

I completed my movie + album while continuing essays and posts about what I would come to call the “Gentrification of Culture ™ “© referring to the intellectual property theft and secret exclusionary behaviors in the most unlikely corners of Arts and Culture

As we know, our work as feminists – and feminism can be fragile, as the world is often cruel to women who speak out, we often need each other — a form of Stockholm-Syndrome style bond out of necessity … so now the “famous feminists” can become the new bullies, having internalized the misogyny — perpetuating the predatory abuse of power — which is why I don’t often avail myself of friendships that are based in “need” or which arise out of hardships like global misogyny …

But there is a bond among us sisters and I always hold a wishful hope that women / girls I encounter will understand the need for true friendship, genuine caring, listening to each other — behaving towards our sisters in ways we wish to be treated … Unfortunately though, I’m going to say it here, and elsewhere – we often miss that mark.

I’m sorry to have to say it, sorrier to have experienced it, but damnit – we need to do better with each other. “Mean Girl Culture Cool” is often invoked when women / girls are acting all “empowered” – but of course that’s just stupid and self-defeating. We must do better.

Sisters – we really must. I offer the project below – which is the first in a trilogy on the subject. This project was a gift I made with my sisters, for my sisters all over the world. We might have been the first #AllFemaleCrew as a production team – but we were certainly among the very first ever and I am certain we were a catalyst.

I had thought that certain #Feminist pages would be a good place to share it and I hope that is true – nevertheless, no matter how, I hope it reaches both Sisters and #Brothers – because together – we really must #GirlTheWorld™ – this is why I made this project – I believe this is how we will over come #ClimateChange + Save Our Planet, Save Our Selves

” #WeToo #ForTheIndividual : Dear John💕Doe-Big-Corporate-Scale-Every-Thing-Head-Quarters 💕” ©CaliLili™

🌊🏄🏿‍♀️🏄🏼‍♀️🏄🏽‍♀️🐬🦀🎬🎶🌱🍃🗽🌎

” #WeToo #ForTheIndividual : Dear John💕Doe-Big-Corporate-Scale-Every-Thing-Head-Quarters 💕©CaliLili™

We appreciate – some – of the ‘humanitarian work’ done by “JohnDoeBigCorporateScaleEveryThingHeadQuarters ” —

even though you sometimes brazenly, disrespectfully + wrongly ” borrow from ” our work —

for #SocialJustice + #EnvironmentalJustice

but

as a TruliIndie™ artist

a 21stCenturyGirl —

a survivor of a “MeToo” sexist misogynistic racist homophobic climate denying corporatocracy fuelling the “CulturalIndustrialComplex™

and on behalf of my team, my “tribe” : generations of “kids of all ages colors creeds + stages ” ™ © along with our grandmothers + grandfathers — similarly afflicted by the indifference of “BIG” (stretching back way before my time) –

I declare the “DeclarationOfIndiePenDance™© honoring a ” 21stCenturyRenaissanceInTheWorks™© “

My team + I work diligently – on a small scale + to promote awareness of important causes and to “weave culture “© on my loom : WildWovenSlow™

Formerly we were ok with following ‘big’ accounts — such as yours — even if they had thousands of followers and even when the “big” – indifferently discarded their own followers- chose only to follow back a few – mostly other “big” accounts. So it goes – “big” supports “big” – the big get bigger .

Recently though… I’ve been thinking … yeah, I’m doing that again …

the fact of the matter is – that independent artists like myself and my team,

as well as “individuals” with “free agency” – freedom to speak out , speak up, freedom to speak for ourselves — about ourselves —

we are neither “big” enough nor interested in attending big donor “charity” functions – strange as it may seem to you — we are also not as “entertained” by your “lifestyles of the obscenely wealthy” – as you may believe we are … stranger still — you may be surprised or confused by our wish to be “makin’ a livin’ not a killin’ “™ © by means of our own handmade meaningful work – not your predigested pablum.

I’ve noticed that – even human rights + other righteous causes have now become increasingly “gentrified” in what I name in my writings :

“GentrificationOfCulture™” – as though it’s not enough for “big” to be big – now – “big” needs to be worshipped for the table scraps they toss Humanity from the table of a charity … In fact every bit of dysfunction we witness in politics today – was auditioned in our cultural big media laboratories – funded by – you.

“we the people ” — including those of us working for years in the humanities – as artists or thinkers, teachers, activists, social workers – must be the makers of our own culture – without your helicopter mind and hand directing our every move from your bank account.

Now that you also want to “gobble up” this dignified work space — which we built — like so many artist neighborhoods built out of the ashes of poverty – that you swoop in and buy up — pushing us out of our own masterpiece — so that we must worship at your tables —

We too – are not just figuratively, but now literally, viscerally – an “endangered species” –

We Too find ourselves at the mercy of the trajectory of a path — which leaves all the ” humanity-based meaningful work” — to the 1 percent – who don’t need the work — they need to be worshipped in spite of their greed – so they “Don” our handmade wardrobes – and only then – declare it ‘holy’ –

– thus – pushing the people out of their own hoods and tribes – in order to keep us in the place you designated for us : “indentured servitude ” to your benevolent kingly bank account – even when it comes to our humanity, our environment, our arts , our very Culture – and therefore our legacy, our history, herstory — our future – our lives.

This form of “gentrified thinking” – also demands that we be grateful for your charity.

But we must not be grateful.

21st Century Social media was born to be democratic, meritorious but also – personal, new-found oxygen for the individual — village-oriented – not Corporate – not “mega.”

#WeToo choose not to harken backwards in time towards gentrification —

but to bring forward all that our ancestry built into a strong culture “for the individual” – into an inclusive – and fair —

“BigTinyFuture™”

with happiness, freedom, wellness, education, food safety — economic justice working hand in hand with environmental justice — at the forefront of our GDP – not an afterthought for table scrap billionaire philosophies —

“BigTinyFuture™ ” – for the whole planet – not just 1 percent.

We dedicate every one of our PoeticJusticeP rojeX™ to this “BigTinyFuture™ ©
