The Bionic Woman

This documentary from filmmakers Kristy Guevara-Flanagan and Kelcey Edwards has already come to be thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, but now they need a little more help to bring the film to the South By Southwest Film Festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas.

Originally titled, The History of the World According to Wonder Woman, the doc, “traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s, to the blockbusters of today,WONDER WOMEN! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society’s anxieties about women’s liberation.” It features interviews with Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman) and Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman) as well as activists Gloria Steinem and Shelby Knox.

But the real stars of documentary are kick ass ladies like Ripley, Sarah Conner, Buffy Summers, Xena the Warrior Princess and of course, Wonder Women. In this film these iconic characters get to shine and that’s a cause worth supporting.

Check out the trailer below, it really starts at about the 1:15 mark after a message from the filmmakers.

Their Kickstarter campaign has only 23 more days to go, and they’ve raised $8,452 of their $15,000 goal. These funds will be going to, “professionally sound mix and color grade the film and prepare a festival print,” in addition to getting the film to the festival. Even if you only pledge a dollar every bit helps. Of course, if you can pledge more you could receive some cool rewards.

So come on, spread the word, donate if you can, and let’s help get these sexy, ass kickin ladies to the big screen!
