Back to School, Days 11 & 12: Nicole Kassell and More...

On Tuesday at The New School, we looked at “The White Boys Club” that is American independent film, considering how and why the industry often lacks ethnic and/or gender diversity, especially in the executive ranks. We watched Jim McKay’s “Our Song” and a clip from Alison Anders’ “Gas Food Lodging”.

While the next day, we considered the growing importance of awards and how the focus on star-driven projects is affecting which movies get made. After watching a clip from Todd Haynes’ “Far From Heaven” and then a screening of “The Woodsman”, we sat down for a brown bag lunch with filmmaker Nicole Kassell who related her experiences getting her successful film off the ground after winning a prize for the script at Slamdance.
