Half the Picture

Dir. Amy Adrion USA 94 min

2018 Gravitas Ventures

Women and men attend film schools in equal numbers, but women direct only 4% of top grossing feature films in the US.  Why are women largely shut out of this prestigious, lucrative and culturally influential profession?  High profile women directors including Ava DuVernay (A Wrinkle In Time), Lena Dunham (“Girls"), Jill Soloway (“Transparent”), among others, offer candid, unfiltered and often humorous tales of their careers in Hollywood, while experts on gender inequality destroy the myths that have allowed discrimination in Hollywood to thrive.  The entertainment industry has denied women’s voices for decades, but with a new Federal investigation into discriminatory hiring in Hollywood and a powerful movement toward equal representation gaining momentum, could this be the dawn of a new era?
