Moontime – Celebrating the Blessing incorporates documentary content and visually poetic elements to celebrate a girl's entrance into womanhood. It shifts the meaning of the cyclical nature of blood in women's lives from merely a biological event, menstruation, to one that empowers women spiritually. It explores the Native American tradition of the Moon Lodge, how attitudes of patriarchy have impacted girl empowerment and girl self-esteem, and how creating individual rituals may cause a shift in cultural attitudes and practices.
