Welcome to Sole Sisters

My name is Cynthia Salzman Mondell, and I am a documentary filmmaker who has made over 40 films.  Some have aired nationally on television, and some are shown in museums like the SIXTH FLOOR  Museum about the life, death and legacy of President John Kennedy.  Another is FUNNY WOMEN about women comedians like Gilda Radner, Lucille Ball, Totie Fields, Moms Mambley, Lilly Tomlin, Mo’nique, Victoria Jackson, Wanda Sykes and more. Many of my films are about women and women’s issues and interests….like SISTERS OF ’77, DREAMS OF EQUALITY, GUTS, GUMPTION AND GO-AHEAD  and THE LADIES ROOM.  I love all of them.

When my Mom got sick with pancreatic cancer, my sister Ann and I found brand new red high heels in her closet. We told Mom that she had to get better so she could get up and dance in those shoes.  She smiled, tried , but didn’t get well.  Those shoes allowed her to dream and hope.  SOLE SISTERS  is dedicated to my Mom and to all those women who have special relationships with their shoes.  Please share your  stories….happy, sad, empowering. I want to create a global  community where women connect with their shoe stories, and, like my Mom, feel hope and are uplifted.
