Super Tuesday ; a poem © Cali Lili

“children grown

hopes blown

blind faith

all we could afford 

to own

so one more time 

we rolled the dice

another drop

let

slot machine of life

and

down we pulled

hand in 

glove

bling

and

bull

we

one arm bandits 

did

lay down 

with devils

Super Tuesday,

yet 

still we burn,

inexplicably

believe

somehow we earned

still

we yearn

for Sunday. ”

Holiday Wish : May 2020 #HealTheWorld

Thanks SO MUCH for the love ! THAT’S WHAT MATTERS!

As we take our baby steps forward … – just as we were relaxing for the holidays – we were alerted to trolls posting lies and fake reviews about the project where-ever they can 🙄 – most recently on Amazon – and then “following” our account posing as Jeff Bezos 🙄 …

Since we found out that we are on the List of Eligible Contenders for an #Oscars2020 nomination – yay – GRANTED – we KNOW we are a LONG shot for a nom – it’s a first film for us, and we are so tiny – running with the big productions – many good films from studios etc …

However …. – even as a ” #DarkHorse candidate – it’s a wonderful opportunity for the project and all involved, for the work to get seen … I’m no egomaniac – but – this is a good film and I’m proud of it — and of the team …

RIGHT NOW : is SUCH a crucial time – where these trolls can really affect us – we’ve had GREAT reviews so far – which is why they went into action … –

it’s a crucial time for the film to be viewed fairly by the Academy Voters – especially during the #Holidays – Voting begins January 2 and ends January 7th … so – added “trolling” is obviously a conscious attempt to harm us ( and me ) – it’d be awesome if anyone reading this might help us in reporting the abusive comments and the accounts targeting us.

– and – if you like stuff about the movie + soundtrack – it would go such a long way toward countering these online evils, with positive reviews – that would help us and – this project – a ton ~ we made it to spread JOY and LOVE – so we wish for it to multiply … even in the face of negativity …

The project champions feminist, lgbtq, black lives matter and climate change causes, and I am personally outspoken – so it’s to be expected – however, it is not deserved and a better online community will result from us all pushing back against such obvious attempts to harm the project.

The film also attempts to “shatter” not only #glassceilings but also “Sound Barriers” on a variety of levels – by “breaking” some “cinematic rules” – so it’s not a “typical” movie – because – I didn’t set out to make anything “typical.”

Since day one – in 2011 when I began posting Job Openings requesting that we were especially hoping to receive #Resumes from #Women , persons in the #LGBTQ + #AfricanAmerican community – with the intent of a #Diversity based #FemaleCrew
for a project that deals with these issues as well as #MeToo and #ClimateEmergency way back in 2011 – we experienced shocking pushback – JUST from the Adverts alone ! Just – for a diversity based – job opening ! – from those who don’t like to see the world healing from racism, sexism, homophobia and climate denial. Unfortunately, in the entertainment industry – some of these things come from competitors or personal disgruntlement. Sigh. 🙄

We would SO appreciate it – if everybody helps us push back at these creeps, by clicking “report abuse” and even reporting the accounts posting these obviously sometimes personally motivated, often politically motivated, homophobic, misogynist and racist lies / abuses.

Thank you Again for your Love because THAT’s WHAT MATTERS !

Happy Holidaze and EVERY DAY for you and your families !

“ SHATTERED “ © Cali Lili ™ meditations on “eVe N’god this female is not yet rated ™” “ What happens before you shatter the glass ceiling ?

Shattering Glass Ceilings + Breaking Sound Barriers


” 1 Day in the Epiphany of a 21st Century Girl, who kissed a Girl. ” ©


Based on a story woven from true-life events, after a brutal attack, we enter the dreamscape of eVe, determined to save the life of her lesbian lover, Lila.


A bittersweet romance, an allegorical virginity fantasy, love-is-love-triangle story, bordering on polyamory, the world we experience is an immersive Sci-Fi Triple-F-Rated Fantasy Fairy Tale of the Global Girl awakening to the legacy of herself in a Venice Beach, Cali Surf Shack (eden).


Our experience of inner landscape, hovers over the cutting edge of life, death, dreams + reality.


Lush, green, yet minimalist.


In two hours, Miss Evening Lili / eVe Striptease Dancer / PHD STEM Science Candidate (Cali Lili) will present Oral Arguments to the PHD Committee. After last night, all bets are off.
This morning is eVe’s final prep session with Advisor Doctor Godard / god Chair of Gender Studies (Wings Hauser).


He wants to know eVe’s conclusions. Problem is: eVe has awoken to so many questions, she can no longer settle for Doc’s limited world.


Shot mostly On the Water with an original 13 song Rock Rap World Beats soundtrack Album to be released with Movie, ‘this female is not yet rated’ unfurls mysteries of an untold interracial love story between women of color eVe + Lilith / ‘Lila.’


Smashing story structure, breaking boundaries, born organically from a graphic novel / script that is surreal, narrative, love letter, declaration of independence, political protest for Democracy on behalf of all vulnerable lives in the balance.


Told ‘Like A Girl,’ with a sexy -smart edge,
this story is dedicated to Mother Earth, endangered communities: global girls, students, LGBTQ, bisexual, trans, BLM, Dreamers, indigenous cultures + wildlife / climate communities, especially ocean life.


Are we trapped in a liminal state-of-consciousness between life + death?


Or does this dream set us free?


Are we dreaming of eVe?


Or is she dreaming of us?

meditations on “eVe N’god this female is not yet rated ™”
“ What happens before you shatter the glass ceiling ?
What does it even really mean – to ‘shatter glass ceilings’ ?
In my movie, ‘eVe’ as ‘every-woman’ has left the proverbial ‘eden’ – to start a ‘garden’ of her own.
We find her, where she ‘landed’ after ‘walking out of eden’ – it’s a little rough for now – her suit-case barely unpacked – the closet over-crowded and flowers breaking through the floor, yearning to find the sun.
eVe explores : what happens after you shatter glass ?
Belting out : ‘ I believe in myself ‘ is an easy platitude –
but …
arriving at a place of one’s own –

a place – where it’s SO incongruent – to take one more step, remaining steeped in the old terrors of abandonment or loss – while still trying to ‘win’ + live a joyful life ?
Dancing ‘backwards in high heels’ as Ginger Rogers described – in order to take one step forward ?
a place – where ‘eVe’ as every-woman – must finally face the demons threatening her very survival
a place – where she knows in her bones : SHE CAN + MUST rely on herself now –
a self which is not alone – but made up of many other ‘every-women’ she can call upon to self-rescue –
the ‘every-women’ are represented by ‘Lila’ – eVe’s yin-yang-twin lover + partner
when everything – including her own faith in others or in the world or ‘god’ – is shattered – together – eVe + Lila – can heal the world.
To ‘shatter glass ceilings’ we must be willing to dare first – to be shattered from your old disempowering beliefs about self and culture.
Now that I’ve explored what happens BEFORE and during — I can’t wait for my next movie – to share what happened NEXT ! “

Movie Review : "  VERY different from the sort of thing that I typically deal with. Much more discursive -

( -Intent for the project comes through very strongly - that this is about trying to break preconceptions and make things better - )

but not everything has to fit the Hollywood template, and in place of action you’ve got atmosphere, a contemplative sense of place and smartly executed intellectual pyrotechnics instead....

 - it’s a pleasure .... but pleasures are guilty things!  "

CHORUS :

In hard times

You’ll find me listenin’

to Melissa,

Feelin’ fine

If she can make it through this mess

Then maybe so can i

in hard times

i’ll be listenin’

to melissa

So i fell in love

I fell hard for the territory

You know the feelin’
Another version of your own story

Girl meets boy

Cinderella lost a shoe

Time to go bare-foot in my point of view

In hard times i’ll be listenin’ to Melissa

These times They are a changin’ the more they are the same
These are the times

Tie our souls to our isms

Love is the war

And hope …
The prison

These are the times Tie our souls to our isms

Ain’t no way You gonna step on my decision ‘Cause i’d rather – die … Than live another minute by –

Your fatal-ism Your patron-ism Your fashion-ism Commission-ism – CRONY-ISM … anti – WOMAN ism ..

Your ISM ISM Your ISM ISM Your ISM ISM .
Your ISM – isn’t …
These are the times you’ll find me listenin’ …
