Burning Down the Barriers Documentary

Burning Down the Barriers – 37th International Miami Film Festival Cinemaslam competition


I’m very excited to announce that my documentary, Burning Down the Barriers, which narrates the story behind the first female firefighter in Miami-Dade county, has been selected as a finalist for the 37th Miami Film Festival’s Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Family Foundation CinemaSlam Competition.

Gender inequality has been an ongoing problem in the fire rescue workforce for many decades. Burning Down the Barriers looks at the experience of three different female firefighters and their personal and professional struggles as part of the force.

The screening of the documentary will take place on Saturday, March 7th at 12:00pm at Tower Theater Miami, 1508 SW 8TH Street, Miami 33135.

Tickets will be available on February 13th, 2020 at the following link:
