Terry’s Picks: Science, Activism, and Hollywood Called Out, Again

image

Recently watched and recommending: Decoding Annie Parker, a film that happily recognizes women scientists, with the upside of being a thoughtful and well-made movie.

Congratulations: to DP Jendra Jarnagin for gracing the cover of MovieMaker Magazine’s Activism in Film issue.

A hat off: to The New York Times movie critics for calling out Hollywood by asking, “So … what’s up with not hiring women to direct movies? Is there something about double-X chromosomes that makes you squeamish? Are women biologically incapable of directing movies, especially the franchises that prop up the big studios year after year?” Yeah, what is up with that?

Terry Lawler is NYWIFT’s Executive Director. Tune in every Tuesday for her picks.
