Emily Bridger, Latonia Hartery and Deanne Foley have created a blog to coincide with their upcoming film, “Sadie,” a thriller set in 1940s rural Newfoundland about a teenage girl dealing with the death of both her parents. Bridger wrote the screenplay, while Hartery is directing and Foley is producing.

“The blog will track the making of ‘Sadie,’ highlight the work of creative women, and address the challenges we all face,” Hartery said in a written statement.
“There is a positive trend in the industry of women supporting women when they get into the writer-director-producer roles. Our film features a cast of 60 per cent females and has other key production spots filled by women. We’re delighted to be in a position to
be able to create these opportunities.”
“It’s great to be diversifying and to be working with a capable team of women,” Foley added.
“As females make more movies, we step forward in a world where our perspective is further incorporated.”
