I caught up with ‘Finding North’ directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush at Sundance 2012. The two shared some great advice for being female in filmland, and reveal why an all-woman crew can sometimes get stuff that others can’t. Their strong advocacy documentary “Finding North” is about hunger in America, and clearly connects the dots between underfunded school lunch and food stamp programs, corporate farms, the obesity epidemic, and American families who can’t feed their kids.
