The Sky Is Red – Learn More!

For the past 18 months, three women from different corners of the country have been working on developing a feature documentary to give a platform to the untold story of the push for gender, race, and class equity in the growing world of ultimate frisbee from the 1968 to the present. Julia Johnson (myself) is producing, Lili Gu and Brittany Kaplan are co-directing, and Mia Greenwald is doing production sound. Three of these people currently or have lived in Los Angeles and been a part of the Ultimate Community on all levels. Julia and Lili met while founding LA Reign together back in 2014 and playing a well-recapped season of Summer League with Gold Room. Both went to school in LA, Julia captaining the USC Hellions, and Lili playing and coaching Midas at UCLA. Julia is also a current board member on the LAOUT Board. Mia moved here from Boston, and she immediately jumped into playing leagues and the club season with 7 Figures.

It has been so amazing to see the immense support from Los Angeles, and we thank each and every one of you. If you don’t know about our project, or want to know more, take a look at the links below! You can also reach out to me and ask any questions about the project. We have a long road ahead of us, and we are so grateful, so check out the links below. We begin production in a week, and we will be on the road for the next 4+ months.
