From the Freepress.org review of the Artists Rise Up Los Angeles ARULA Short Film Festival : “Composer/filmmaker Judith Lynn Stillman’s I Cherish Women was among the most powerful shorts. In it, a soprano alto tenor bass chorus performed Stillman’s classical composition, with lyrics by that world renowned librettist – NO, not Gilbert or Sullivan, but Donald J. Trump. Although there are some men in the chorus, every one of the solo parts is sung by multi-culti women, who all sing actual words re: women uttered by the grabber-in-chief. During a post-screening Q&A moderated by LA talk radio host Sheena Metal, Stillman cleverly explained she found the “antidote to fake news – we use Trump’s own words.”
From The Women’s Fund of Rhode Island: “I just viewed an original film by Judith Lynn Stillman called “I Cherish Women.” It’s profound and I look forward to helping to push it out to the world when it’s ready for prime time. Thanks, Judith, for standing up for women in RI, our nation and around the world.”

I Cherish Women by Judith Lynn Stillman, a short music video with narration, embodies the contradictory and misleading juxtaposition of Donald Trump’s own words: what should be the pure sentiment of cherishing women alongside the vulgar and degrading language used simultaneously. Spoken by an all-women cast, we express our continuing cycle of emotional reactions to these egregious comments, unconscionably brushed off as ‘locker room talk,’ which have elicited in us multiple stages of grief including anger, denial, depression — however, we will never allow ourselves to reach the stage of acceptance.
