SUSANNE AND THE MAN
A Short film
Susanne endeavors to find her own voice & rhythm when she finds herself in a meeting with the king of mansplaining.
Susanne has never been more prepared for the job interview she has lined up with Stan, a successful businessman. However, when Stan enters speaking in his own "unique" fashion, Susanne quickly learns this was not the kind of interview she expected. “Susanne and The Man” is a light-hearted comedy that explores some of the darkest issues plaguing today’s gender stereotypes.
A NOTE FROM THE WRITER:
The reason I wrote this story should be clear.
It started with shame, some self-doubt, and a tear.
See, I’m off in Hollywood pursuing my dreams.
When everything I worked for fell apart at the seams.
A man I had assisted for almost a year,
Leaned in close and whispered in my little ear.
He asked if I’d sleep with him, given the chance,
And If I did, he’d help my career to advance.
I was shocked, distraught, and wanted to run,
I had worked my ass off for him. It wasn’t for fun.
But all my hard work was just gone in a flash.
Once I realized he viewed me as a worthless piece of trash.
So I grabbed my laptop and wrote down this piece.
Because the number of men who do this needs to decrease.
See it isn’t our fault, girls, we’ve done nothing wrong.
I want to leave this message to you in a song.
Watch my film and you’ll see what I mean.
It’s a rhyming, blast of sass up on the big screen.
