 BY DEMITRI ADDERLEY

There are few times in the cinematic experience when a piece of art is so of its time it sends out the perfect message we all need to hear. In an age when crimes against women surge and when women are STILL statistically paid less than their male counterparts—a time when the narrative of woman is still very much controlled by patriarchy—a film has risen from the underground to confront these ailments of the times. That film is FIGHT IN HEELS.

FIGHT IN HEELS is an invitation, an incantation to that warrior spirit of woman that is at once very much feminine, but EXCLUSIVELY AND DECISIVELY KICK ASS.

WATCH THE OFFICIAL TRAILER:

The central and compelling theme of FIGHT IN HEELS is the reawakening of the warrior spirit in womankind. So much of modern femininity is wrapped up in primping and accessorizing, makeup tutorials, and sex tips from magazines. Women are encouraged to be docile and soft, even to their own detriment. This film eviscerates that pathos; “You can’t fight in high heels…SNAAAAATCH.”

FIGHT IN HEELS is an invitation, an incantation to that warrior spirit of woman that is at once very much feminine, but EXCLUSIVELY AND DECISIVELY KICK ASS. Why wait to be empowered when you can simply SNATCH POWER? If you are tired of films that constantly put the female characters in subordinate roles…if you cannot stand the trifling and lascivious nature of white, male patriarchy…if you have ever been put down, teased, and harassed by a world that every day works to strip you of any and all power—SNATCHPOWER is the movement you seek—FIGHT IN HEELS is the movie you must see. ♦
