TERRY’S PICKS: MAD MEN, JILL SOLOWAY STORMS THE GATES

Loved the final episode of Mad Men. Happy that Joan, the real feminist in the group, is starting her own production company. There are women in New York that started production companies at about the same time. NYWIFT members. Sorry that Peggy didn’t join in. But loved the cut from Don Draper’s hippy-dippy meditation scene to the “I would like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony…” coke commercial. Someone had to think of that…why not Don Draper

Storm the gates! That’s Transparent creator Jill Soloway’s advice for women filmmakers from her keynote speech at the AFI Conservatory Directing Workshop for Women. She said change will come “when we’re all wilder louder, riskier, sillier, unexpectedly overflowing with surprise.”
