Cannes award-winning documentary filmmaker Cassie Jaye (Daddy I Do) has traveled the country documenting members of the controversial, mostly online, group The Men’s Rights Movement or MRAs for her feature documentary The Red Pill.
Heralding Alice’s fall down the “rabbit hole”, the feminist filmmaker follows the MRAs to protests, sits with them in their homes and delves into issues such as circumcision, abortion, incarceration, suicide, father’s rights and birth control, to name a few. She also interviews leading feminists for the other side’s take on gender politics.The journey makes Jaye question her own beliefs.
Cassie says, “I’m very excited to start sharing my third feature documentary “The Red Pill” with the world, but we still need to raise finishing funds. I hope you’ll support our Kickstarter campaign and help spread the word!”
While VERY pregnant, I was interviewed for The Red Pill, representing the “feminist” half of this groundbreaking new film. Hearing some of the unique perspectives of men I’d never met, and engaging in an hours-long conversation with Jaye made me reexamine a lot of my own longstanding feminist beliefs, and further embrace my life’s mission statement: to attain unity with men and more compassion for all beings. It raised questions I still don’t have answers to, and personally — I can’t wait to see the film in its entirety!
PLEASE share this on your Facebook and Twitter, pin it to your Pinterest and of course, donate to RED PILL’s Kickstarter page! Every $ counts! ;) Thanks for your support! XOX
As part of a very informal press “tour” for the spoof zombie movie, ZOMBIE BOUNTY HUNTER, M.D., I appeared on Goth Comedian Dark Mark’s radio show/podcast at Skidrow Studios about a week ago. Smart and funny Dark Mark and his devilish co-host Josi Kat (Singer for punk band PISS ANT, founder of THE FEARLEADERS, the cheerleading squad to the LA Derby Dolls Roller Derby Team) interviewed me and my blonde, bespectacled co-star Hannah Elizabeth Pierce with director Pirooz Kalayeh. We dished about naughty behind-the-scenes tidbits, dating older men, and later, sideshow performer Whodini sixteenninetytwo showed off his dangerous side.
Watch the full video of our interview below! Listen to the podcast, here.
A little about Goth Comedian Dark Mark: He has hosted at The CONVERGENCE 18 GOTH FESTIVAL, The SAN LUIS OBISBO GOTH FESTIVAL, The DEAD FLESH FEAST HORROR FESTIVAL, The SUNSET STRIP MUSIC FESTIVAL (also featuring Marilyn Manson, Offspring, Bad Religion and De La Soul) as well as Kinky shows at S & M Dungeons and has been featured on Andy Dick Live! Mark has been a 9-time LA Times Comedy pick of the week as well as being a Las Vegas Citylife pick of the week. Mark White has performed with the biggest names in comedy including performers such as Steven Wright, Jerry Seinfeld, Margaret Cho, Dane Cook, Andrew “Dice” Clay, Damon Wayans, Otto and George, Eddie Griffin, Jeff Ross, Maria Bambford, and George Lopez among others.
I had the pleasure of working with director Pirooz Kalayeh (SHOPLIFTING FROM AMERICAN APPAREL) and bestselling Zen author Brad Warner on a fun zombie spoof movie! If you happen to remember, I had a two-day shoot with this team in 2012 as part of HARDCORE ZEN, a mockumentary about Warner’s life as a Zen monk. I played Debra, a Zen groupie.
For ZOMBIE BOUNTY HUNTER, M.D., I play Lara Steele of Steele News, a blogger on a mission, during the zombie apocalypse! Watch the Indiegogo campaign trailer below, and please support us so we can play at festivals and spread our debauchery nationwide!
The Indiegogo fundraiser has some pretty cool perks, such as artwork by Jeffrey Brown (DARTH VADER & SON) digital downloads of the soundtrack featuring SPINDRIFT, autographed books by Brad Warner, and DVDs, Blu Rays, and flash drives with all kinds of extras.
Let me know what you think in the comments!
Thanks & Kiss! xoxo

I’m really grateful to appear in all of the episodes of The Conversation, as a “woman on the street.” Better-termed, a notable woman who isn’t a celebrity (yet). ;)
If you haven’t been watching, be sure to catch up at The Conversation website, which also serves as a community for women’s voices and stories. Men are welcome there to. Let’s learn from one another, so that we can get just that much closer to the elusive… UNITY.
View the latest episode, where I’m sprinkled throughout, dishing on topics like “your biggest vice,” “your favorite sex position,” and “what turns you on”? I’m looking forward to some of the other questions I answered in my segment, like “what would you tell your 14-year-old self”? Perhaps in a future episode!
This week’s episode was a sparkler, mostly because of Kelly Preston’s insight about sexual attraction, and Mira Sorvino – who serves as the UN Ambassador To Combat Human Trafficking – revealing the bleak realities of human trafficking and abuse of women, and her grandmother’s bravery amid domestic violence. Mira makes a great distinction between being sexually forthright and empowered, and allowing yourself to be objectified or taken advantage of. Personally, I wish our society would remove the burden and blame from women in avoiding rape, dealing with rape, and having to shirk the shame from being raped, instead insisting that Men learn to end the machist culture that promotes it. Talk about an opportunity for a unified front and spiritual elevation!
The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet and exec producer Demi Moore, airs next on June 21, 11/10C on Lifetime. Catch the latest news and watch episodes and clips for free by signing up for their mailing list.
