This Changes Everything
In this timely follow-up to his documentary Casting By (HCAF 2012), Tom Donahue explores the insidious and systematic sexism in Hollywood through the voices of leading actors and directors, including Geena Davis, Meryl Streep, Sandra Oh, Jessica Chastain, Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon and many other ambassadors of the #TimesUp movement.
Uncovering what’s behind one of the most confounding dilemmas in the entertainment industry—the under-representation and misrepresentation of women behind and in front of the camera—this documentary takes an incisive look into the historical and empirical evidence, and systematic forces that foster gender discrimination and reinforce disparities in our culture. Even the most jaded viewers will be taken aback by the film’s compelling evidence and anecdotes. Executive Producer Geena Davis (Thelma and Louise) has led groundbreaking research into Hollywood’s portrayal of women. Those damning facts become vivid through an array of iconic film clips.
