Evan Grae Davis has dedicated his career to advocating for social justice through writing and directing short documentaries and educational videos championing the cause of the poor and exploited. From the Aral Sea disaster in Eastern Europe to poverty in Africa to social transformation among the tribal groups of South America, Evan has traveled the globe with camera in hand for nearly two decades. Evan draws from his experience and passion as he lends leadership to Shadowline Films, a team of filmmakers who share a common concern for the critical issues of our time.
Evan released his first feature length documentary film, "It's a Girl" in September 2012. In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of this so-called “gendercide”.
Shot on location in India and China, It’s a Girl explores the issue. It asks why this is happening, and why so little is being done to save girls and women.
It's a Girl has screened in over 500 locations in over 22 countries, including at the European and British Parliaments and on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Nearly half a million people have joined the movement to end gendercide as a result of the film.
It's a Girl is now available on DVD, iTunes, Netflix and several other digital outlets.
Evan is now in production on his second film.
