Headwaters Entertainment Presents

Minnesota Anthology Series: THE WILLMAR EIGHT

An Industry Growth and Development Launch Event

Overview:

For nearly two years, eight female employees of Willmar's Citizens National Bank (dubbed the Willmar 8), picketed in front of their downtown workplace seeking pay equity.

They never got pay increases, they never got strike-related compensation, and after the strike, only one woman returned to work at the bank for more than a few months. But for the women's movement, the 1977–1979 strike was a resounding success.

Join us August 1st, as we discuss The Willmar Eight and several other Minnesota stories that we are looking to launch as part of our MN: Anthology Series.

Meet and mingle with the filmmakers, actors, and the some of the members of the Willmar Eight. Enjoy cocktails, craft beer, and snacks provided by local companies, as well as a short presentation about the project and what we are aiming to achieve.

Goals

To inform and educate a larger audience about the history of Minnesota, while building up our local film infrastructure, and helping pave the way for a larger Minnesota based film scene.

We see this project as an opportunity to involve a larger community of Minnesotans. Headwaters Entertainment would like to see a system independent of Hollywood, and in doing so we will require financial resources from parties equally passionate about preserving and sharing our rich history and culture.
