As it notes on the film's website, when feminist filmmaker Cassie Jaye set out to document the mysterious and polarizing world of the Men's Rights Movement, she began to question her own beliefs.
Jaye had only heard about the Men's Rights Movement as being a misogynist hate-group aiming to turn back the clock on women's rights. After spending a year filming the leaders and followers within the movement, she learns the various ways men are disadvantaged and discriminated against.
"The Red Pill challenges the audience to pull back the veil, question societal norms, and expose themselves to an alternate perspective on gender equality, power and privilege," noted a spokesperson for the film.
"I'm elated," Jaye said in regards to winning the DigiFest Women in Film Award.
"I've been a member of Women in Film, the organization, for many years, and my work previous to The Red Pill was focused on women's issues or LGBT rights, and I've always been drawn to gender politics. With The Red Pill, it's been a really tough road. The support around The Red Pill has been from people who really want to see men's issues included in the gender equality discussion."
Jaye says making the film helped her examine her own knee-jerk reactions to men and "accepting that men can be victims too." She goes on to say that "There are men in pain, and those men deserve a voice and a seat at the table."
Legendary Man is pleased to support this journey of discovering men without prejudice: their struggles, their vulnerabilities, and the ways they have been disadvantaged by traditional values, along with women.
"We encourage you to check out the film's website for more insight into this groundbreaking film," noted a company spokesperson.
