Sir Ken Robinson Praises “Hats Off”

Sir Ken Robinson—the globally recognized expert and bestselling author on creativity and education—has included an extensive reference to our film Hats Off in his book, Finding Your Element.

He cites the film’s subject, Mimi Weddell, as the perfect example of someone who follows her own dreams even when they fly in the face of societal norms, and as a result happily finds her own “Element.” He references Hats Off as “the acclaimed documentary,” and quotes director Jyll Johnstone’s reflection of Mimi, “It’s amazing how she touched so many lives.” We are very excited to see such a great reference to the film, especially coming from a thought leader like Sir Ken Robinson; and we encourage everyone to check out Finding Your Element, and, if you haven’t seen Hats Off yet, to check that out as well.
