    To The Academy: Consider the Women

    It's that time of year, The Academy Awards, the "Super Bowl for Women." It's the night where we all get catty about whose dress doesn't work, who's got a new boyfriend or girlfriend, and who looks like they haven't eaten all month.

    Women Directed Movies in 2011

    Yesterday, the Hollywood Reporter roundtable on directors made me crazy, but it also made me think.  While I will give them no leeway on the ridiculous comment asking the directors to name a major movie directed by a woman this past year, I thought it would be good to look at ALL the movies dir...

    A Film That Is Making a Difference - The Whistleblower

    A couple of months ago I participated in a Q&A with Amy Kaufman one of the producers of The Whistleblower. I asked her if the people at the UN had seen the film and her reply was that she didn't think that they would be so into it because the film takes a harsh stand on the peacekeepers who traffic...

    The Whistleblower - directed by Larysa Kondracki and written by Kondracki and Eilis Kirwan

    Trailer Watch: The Whistleblower - Directed by Larysa Kondracki

    The Whistleblower is a film that hits you right in the gut. It's based on the true story of a real life whistleblower Kathryn Bolkovac a cop from Nebraska who volunteered to go be a peacekeeper in the Balkans to make some quick good cash so she could be near her daughter who her ex had relocated. Little did she know that she would be walking into an international scandal of epic proportions -- the trafficking of women -- which the peacekeepers are involved in. She decides to stand up for these women who she is there to protect and gets herself fired and gets her life threatened. This is an important film that is a tough watch, but worth i...
