“We weren’t finding executive producers who wanted to take a balanced approach, we found people who wanted to make a feminist film,” she told the website Breitbart. “I started to see the bias towards women’s films and against men’s. There are no categories for men’s films [when applying for grants], though there are several for women and minorities. I submitted the film to human rights categories, and was rejected by all of them.”
After funding was pulled, Jaye turned to Kickstarter where she has raised almost $204,000, more than double her target of $97,000.
Jaye initially planned to profile the men’s rights movement from a feminist point of view, but found her beliefs changing while filming the documentary. The Kickstarter page promises the film will document “a life-altering journey where she would never see the world the same way again”.
