Roll Call! Let’s give it up for Kimberly M. Wetherell
When I first met Kimberly M. Wetherell, she had just finished her first short film WHY WE WAX
— a hilarious documentary about the history of bikini waxing. The cover of this film sports a sexy close-up of a woman, naked except for an outrageous aquamarine merkin where her triangle under discussion should be. In this film, Kimberly artfully discusses everything from metrosexual shaping trends to Brazilians gone wrong, even going so far as to concoct an ancient Egyptian hair wax removal recipe in her kitchen involving eggshells and cat dung. My fascination turned into absolute giddiness when later on she sent me a batch of homemade, drunken marshmallows…presumably from the same kitchen. Were it legal in my state to do so, I would consider sending her a proposal of marriage.
Several international awards later, Kimberly Wetherell is now in full-swing production of her first full-feature film, LULLABY. LULLABY is a poignant drama about a Hidden Child of the Holocaust’s invented life and her family’s discovery of the truth. It is filled with lush imagery, imaginative drama, and hauntingly beautiful music. The film promises to be incredible, of course, but what we here at SCREE are obsessively honed in on is Kimberly’s journey to get there. Having grown her grass-roots movement from a packet of seeds, she has had to work hard to accomplish her dream. She has had to write the screenplay, raise the money, schmooze the right people, find and direct the talent, and produce this bad boy. In short, she is the real deal.
