    Cross-Post: A Heroine's Journey

    The world has moved on but I’m still obsessing about why, for the second time in three years was there no films directed by a woman in the main competition at Cannes this year. I mean I know it’s only one festival but it’s by far the most prestigious and really that kind of omissio...

    Cannes 2012: Sexism Watch Continues

    One of the things I am proud of regarding the work many people have done to raise awareness about the lack of opportunities for female directors is how we were able to interrupt the narrative which is usually all about the clothes, stars and the glamour.   For example, look at what the women of...

    Sign the Petition! Where Are the Women Directors?

    It's been very interesting to watch the opening of the Cannes Film Festival.  In light of the fact that there are no women directors in competition and the great work of La Barbe, at the opening press conference the jury as well as the directors of the festival were confronted with a barrag...

    Sundance: Andrea Arnold Talks Using Mumford & Sons For 'Wuthering Heights' & Her Intuitive Approach To Filmmaking

    There are as many adaptations and variations on Emily Brontë's "Wuthering Heights" as there are theories about how Heathcliff gains his wealth and maturity before enacting his revenge. Thankfully, for Brontë-philes, that is still up for debate in "Fish Tank" directo...

    Watch: Moody Teaser Trailer For Andrea Arnold's Outstanding 'Wuthering Heights'

    This writer saw several films that verged on greatness at the Venice Film Festival this year, but none quite blew us away like Andrea Arnold's "Wuthering Heights."

Her choice of a third film raised some eyebrows, however: Arnold was selected to helm a long-in-the-works film version of Emily Brontë's "Wuthering He...

    Andrea Arnold Casts James Howson As Cinema's First Black Heathcliff In 'Wuthering Heights'

    For her follow-up to the excellent "Fish Tank," director Andrea Arnold has done a great job at keeping her forthcoming adaptation of "Wuthering Heights" under a veil of secrecy. With filming wrapped last week, it was still a mystery as to who landed the lead role of Heathcliff of the film but as the...
