In 2013, we launched Indiewire Influencers, a look at some of the people who were having the biggest impact in film, TV and the internet. Today, we’re launching the Indiewire Influencers podcast, where we’ll bring you interviews with a new Influencer every week.
We couldn’t be prouder to start with Rose McGowan. She’s an actor, a filmmaker, and a rabble rouser. In this unfiltered interview with Indiewire editor in chief Dana Harris, she discusses the tweet that got her fired from her agency and shares tales from the front, including the difference between how women are treated in indie film versus Hollywood (the answer may surprise you).
“It goes back to this patriarchal ‘Daddy’s mad at you,'” she said, “to be in fear of the men in power and what they can do.”
“I am threatening,” she added. “I should be threatening. Why not?”
Listen to the full episode above.
