The Mesdames of Mayhem
By Cat Mills
Delve into the dark minds of a collective of murder mystery writers and learn of the creepy, sometimes twisted realities that inspire these women's stories. Every two years, a group of authors in their 50s-80s, combine their forces and write an anthology of murderous short stories. They call themselves The Mesdames of Mayhem. While most fiction writing has historically been dominated by men, we see an exception with crime writing. The readership of crime fiction is mostly women. So why do women love murder? Through the stories of four Mesdames, Lisa, Melodie, Jane and Donna, we learn why women are drawn to the crime fiction world and how they restore chaos and obtain justice-even if it is just on paper

On Falling
By Josephine Anderson
In this short documentary, three women reflect on their willingness to sustain broken bones, concussions, and organ damage as professional mountain bikers. On Falling is a dreamy, unorthodox glimpse into the inner landscapes of those immersed in a subculture where falling is normal. Blending white-knuckle riding, crashes, and quiet self-examination, the film unfolds as a sensory meditation on the rush of control that comes with completely letting go.
