Join us Friday October 8th, 2021 for a Pay-Per-HAP debut, as we offer a live viewing and real-time, post-screening talkback of BORDERLAND: The Life & Times of Blanche Ames Ames; a Kevin G. Friend documentary, honoring the life of a true renaissance woman.

In Episode #57 of the Immersive Living History Series Pay-Per-HAP , meet Blanche Ames Ames (1878-1969): An artist, inventor, suffragist, and proponent of birth control. Blanche, known as a woman of privilege, was unafraid to shock the austerity of late Victorian and early Edwardian Society. Though her name may not appear in many American History textbooks, her life is a thrilling saga that shapes our cultural identity. The 55-minute documentary film is followed by a real-time Q&A and talkback with the film's Screenwriter/Narrator, Kate Klise. Pay-Per-HAP is produced by History At Play™, LLC (HAP, LLC) and livestreams direct to you!

Recording viewable for 48 hours! Ticket sales close Sunday October 10, at 8pm ET (UTC-5). For those attending the livestream Friday evening, the virtual theatre opens at 7:15pm ET. Viewers requesting entry after 7:25pm ET may be admitted at the Host’s discretion, following introductory remarks. All patrons gain access to the Digital Playbill, prior to the program, and to BONUS MATERIALS following the event.
Borderland: The Life & Times of Blanche Ames Ames is a 55-minute documentary that chronicles the life of a woman, born in the 19th Century, who worked to change the 20th Century, and whose wisdom still resonates today.

Blanche Ames Ames descended from a long line of strong women and powerful men. Her grandmother Sarah Hildreth Butler was a famed Shakespearean actress. Her grandfather was a Civil War General by the name of Benjamin Franklin Butler. Adelbert Ames, Blanche's father, was also a Union General and, later, a Reconstructionist Governor. Yet, it was her mother Blanche Butler Ames who posed the question that would serve as the touchstone for young Blanche's life: Will women ever have the same rights as men? For Blanche, the only possible answer was "yes."

Kate Klise, screenwriter & narrator, ​is a former People magazine correspondent, turned award-winning author of more than 30 books for young readers. Kate learned about Blanche Ames Ames while serving as writer-in-residence for the Ames Free Library. She was thrilled to pen and narrate this film and honor the life of one of America's unsung heroines.

Running time: Approx. 55 minutes, followed by real-time audience Q&A and Talkback with the film's screenwriter and narrator Kate Klise. BONUS MATERIALS provided after each episode of Pay-Per-HAP ! Episodes are viewable for 48 hours after livestream. This program is appropriate for all ages.
