Sista in the Brotherhood


Synopsis:
The story tracks a black, apprentice carpenter, played by Sidony O’neal, struggling to prove herself on her first day at a new job site. An outlier in a white, male-dominated workforce, she’s forced to navigate the crew’s reactions to her. When things come to a head, she receives inspiration from a surprising source that helps her realize she has to make a stand or risk never being recognized as the skilled worker she has become. Based on themes from Co-Executive Producer, Roberta Hunte’s doctoral research on black tradeswomen, the film brings to light the experience of many women and people of color in a male dominated industry like construction. These stories are rarely seen on the big screen or mainstream media. The original script was written by gay, latina, carpenter Dawn Jones Redstone (Director of the film) and Kjerstin Johnson (Editor in Chief at Bitch Media).
