“The Jessicas are turning 30,” a new documentary short from The Lily, a woman-focused publication from The Washington Post, will air at this year’s PBS To The Contrary’s About Women and Girls Film Festival the weekend of Dec 13. The film will be included in the Domestic Issues section. It will also stream online on PBS’s website for one month.

“The Jessicas are turning 30” weaves together six compelling narratives of people who were born Jessica in 1989. The film captures what it’s like to be 30 in America today. For millennials, the milestone has become an age heavy with expectation.

About Women and Girls Film Festival seeks to honor the work of first-time filmmakers tackling issues that affect women and girl’s lives. The winners in four categories air nationally on To The Contrary, offering over a million impressions to up and coming filmmakers and shining a light on critical issues.
