REDISCOVERING KATE CAREW (TEASE) from JaffaFilms on Vimeo.

 

An American female caricaturist and journalist who drew and interviewed the famous, the notorious, and the pioneering figures of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The tale of a singular woman who survived, and followed her dreams from a rugged California frontier, to a life filled with ambition, fame and tragic consequence in the Gilded age.

A body of work that was lost for almost a century until now.

The film production moves into high gear this year is launching fund-raising with this event.

Special performance of scenes from a risqué melodrama about prostitutes and Bowery lowlife that were so common at the turn of century the genre was called the brothel play. Then – as now – America worried and obsessed about the modern woman, sex in the city and women’s rights. Kate Carew wrote and drew about these issues in 1910, highlighting the abuse of streetwalkers, some of whom were called ‘white slaves’. Vice as social issue and drama.
