Experiencing Interruptions?

We Have Our Ways

In a dystopic but recognizable America, street riots are common, tap water is undrinkable, and you’re lucky if you get health insurance. Regina usually keeps her head down to just get by, especially at work. As a customer service rep for Alleviate (“Keeping you healthy tomorrow, today”), she must reject health coverage for desperate callers all day in order to do her job. But when her younger cousin Abigail is in need of a criminalized medical procedure, she must decide what price she’s willing to pay for justice.

Director Biography - Dawn Jones Redstone

Dawn Jones Redstone is an award-winning filmmaker whose work centers stories that lift the experiences of women and people of color. Her work has screened around the world, but she is perhaps best known for her multi-award winning short film, Sista in the Brotherhood, about a black apprentice carpenter who experiences discrimination. After a successful festival run, the narrative film is currently being purchased and used as a training tool for training within the construction industry. Additionally, Dawn directed the soon-to-be-released short film We Have Our Ways about reproductive justice in a dystopia near future as well as Nonprofit web series about a woman of color working at a nonprofit in the whitest city in America. In 2016, Dawn received the Lilla Jewel Artist Award from MRG Foundation and was also named a Woman of Vision by the Daily Journal of Commerce.
