We will continue to update The Great American Lie Kickstarter and Facebook pages with information about our progress and more behind-the-scene sneak peeks of the film. If your reward comes with a physical item, keep an eye out for a survey so we can get your gifts to you as soon as possible.

Again, from all of us at The Representation Project, thank you for playing an integral role in making The Great American Lie a reality. Together, we can transform our culture so that all people can realize their human potential.

WATCH THE TEASER

We are currently living in one of the greatest periods of social and economic inequality in our nation’s history. Today, the top 0.1% of Americans own as much wealth as the bottom 90%. In 2017 alone, 82% of new wealth created went to the top 1%.

Meanwhile, one in five American children and one in eight American women live in poverty – despite us being one of the wealthiest countries on earth. Increasing inequality has created deep social, economic, and political divides. Clearly the status quo is not working.

The Great American Lie exposes how this inequality is rooted in our beliefs with the cultural pendulum swinging too far towards revering things we consider “masculine,” like individualism, power, and money, at the expense of things we consider “feminine,” like empathy, care, and collaboration.

SUPPORT THE CAMPAIGN

Our films have always inspired passion, catalyzed communities and individuals, and meaningfully contributed to an emerging understanding of the impact of limiting gender norms in US culture. Miss Representation and The Mask You Live In have been seen by millions of people and screened in all 50 states in the US and over 80 countries worldwide. The Great American Lie promises to further grow the conversation in meaningful ways.
