Screenings of ICKQ take place through June 17 in major cities across the U.S.
Over the last year, MILCK and her team have worked in collaboration with an all-female team to produce a short documentary film following her journey after her song of healing went viral at the Women’s March.
I Can’t Keep Quiet was produced in partnership with P&G Studios by an incredible team including Peabody Award-winning documentary filmmaker Grace Lee, Emmy Award winner Maile M. Zambuto, Kimberly Doebereiner of P&G Studios, GRAMMY nominee Adrianne E. Gonzalez (AG), Connie K. Lim (MILCK), Brianna M. Arnolde, and Peabody Award-winner Chung, who makes her directorial debut with this film.
I Can’t Keep Quiet is an intimate portrait of one woman’s quest for healing that reverberated around the globe through her song “Quiet,” an anthem for the women’s movement. Five years later, we take a deeper look into the song’s impact on MILCK’s journey of reclamation: reclaiming trust in herself, her sense of belonging, and her sisterhood with “Quiet’s” co-writer, AG. As we follow MILCK’s path of activism and artistry, we get a window into how she’s awakened by the stillness of quarantine and the reckoning of our country’s racial justice movement. Her acknowledgement and accountability for her blind spots provides her and AG a chance for healing as they celebrate that it’s never too late to reclaim our voices.
In tandem with the I Can’t Keep Quiet’s premiere, MILCK just released her newest single, “Closer”. This song urges the listener to be courageous in the relationships that are important to them, and fittingly was co-written with Adrianne Gonzalez (AG). “Closer” serves as the closing tracking to the film. You can stream it here.
