USA Promos

Milck's song 'Quiet' became the anthem of January's women's march in Washington DC after she was filmed performing it in the street with an a cappella choir who had rehearsed online. That march was a powerful counter-weight to the inauguration of President Trump and it helped to bring about the extraordinary round of revelations about men who have abused their positions for sexual gratification.

The song 'Quiet' is a survivor's song and as more and more women have voiced their experiences through the #MeToo phenomenon on social media, it has become ever more resonant.

The decision to re-release the song and create a new promo to celebrate the first anniversary of the women's march indicates how integral 'Quiet' is to this movement... and the decision to release both ahead of schedule indicates just how quickly things are moving along.

Like the song, Elizabeth Orne's promo is a perfect calibration between the awfulness of facing harassment, and the defiance of refusing to be quiet about it. But it has something else as well. Embedded in the promo is an utterly beautiful scene depicting a father's acceptance of his trans daughter.

It's this sequence more than any other that matches the uplifting timbre of the song and reminds us that a nirvana of acceptance and equality lies ahead... if men are prepared to put in the effort.
