    Hollywood Feminists of the Day: Chris O'Dowd and Jon Hamm - The Guys from Friends with Kids

    Guest Post: Just Do It: One Woman’s Journey to Making a Feature

    I wish someone had told me when I started out that if you want to make a feature, you need to find a way to do it.  Don’t wait for permission.  Don’t wait for someone to recognize your brilliance and hand you money.  Use what you’ve got and make it.

    Interview with Megan Griffiths - Director of SXSW Audience Winner Eden

    Interview with the Director Kristy Guevara-Flanagan and Producer Kelcey Edwards of Wonder Woman - The Untold Story of American Superheroines

    I am one of those girls who grew up watching Wonder Woman and The Bionic Woman.  I loved those shows.  The feminist in me was alive way back then when Lynda Carter and Lindsey Wagner were kicking butt on TV in the 70s.  Of course I never realized how revolutionary those shows were at ...

    Cross Post: Nina Menkes - Cinema as Sorcery

    I have fallen in love with Nina Menkes.  Her films have taken me there, in their descent to the depths of her psyche, and by way of hers, to my own.  I continue falling in love with her as she shares her experience of making her art.  She speaks of her films as dreams that she interpr...
