In “Genesis” the Future of Mankind is Woman

UPDATE: Genesis is a sci-fi action dramedy that explores the possibility of an all-female civilization. It’s a film we are excited to support and we think you’re going to be intrigued. There are only 25 days left to back this project and make it happen, so get over to their INDIEGOGO if you like what you see below.

In a new sci-fi dramedy starring Meredith Baxter, we get to live out the fantasy of an all-female civilization. Baxter, who is best known and loved for her role as America’s favorite TV mom on 1980’s sitcom Family Ties, plays Dr. Alix Martel in Genesis, written and directed by Audrey Evans. In a promotional video for the film, the actress speaks enthusiastically about the project and her character.

“Its not that often that I’m going to be hired and cast as a butch lesbian doctor who’s lost her license.”

According to the film’s website, the basic plot is this:

“Genesis is the story of the first woman to be giving birth by Parthenogenesis, the body’s ability to reproduce without fertilization or outside stimulus. The woman is abducted by the world powers — all men — who are studying her to see how they can save their species from extinction. She’s then liberated by a group of radical feminist lesbians led by Meredith Baxter’s character, and taken to their colony which is at an abandoned Jewish resort in the Catskills…

Think Orange is the New Black meets Pulp Fiction meets Enter the Dragon.”

If you’ve ever fantasized about a world where all men have gone extinct, and lesbians are everywhere…you’re going to like this. What could be better than a modern version of the ancient Isle of Lesbos? But this one has Meredith Baxter, and two other talented lesbian actresses, Suzanne Westenhoefer and Dana Goldberg. That’s three lesbians getting to play lesbians on screen, and not a male gaze in sight. Are you excited? Watch the trailer below, and then visit their INDIEGOGO page to read a full description of the project, the all-star cast, the film’s debut director, and find out how you can get involved! Let’s help make this happen. Because lesbians!

We spoke to Audrey Evans, the film’s writer and director, about the project.

“I love this project because it’s a film made by, and for, women, and I mean all women – all shapes, sizes, ages, and ethnicities – not the women “Hollywood” says are “acceptable.” If we waited for them – the men who are in power in Hollywood – to give us the green light, it would never happen. That’s why we’re doing this entirely on our own, and that’s a daunting task but we’re getting it done – with the help and support of our community. We want Genesis to be the first in many lesbian-centric films that speak to our experience. “
