UNtitled gender in hollywood feature documentary

Now in Production

Gender in Hollywood (working title) takes an incisive look into the male-dominated film industry to examine those forces – both conscious and unconscious – that continue to foster the systemic underrepresentation and misrepresentation of women.  Produced with New Plot Films in association with the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media and the Artemis Rising Foundation, this documentary asks: What is behind the film industry’s blatant gender bias? What has been tried in the past and what initiatives are being tried today (and around the world) to confront gender discrimination? What does this discrimination look like on a more personal level? And most importantly, is there any real evidence that the industry is finally changing? 

I have always firmly believed that every director should be judged solely by their work, and not by their work based on their gender. Hollywood is supposedly a community of forward-thinking and progressive people, yet this horri c situation for women directors persists. Gender discrimination stigmatizes our entire industry. Change is essential.
