Congratulations on all of these wonderful debuts and big steps forward in the industry, Traci, Kylie, Sushma and Niki!
I forgot to submit my news for November, but if anyone hasn’t seen my feature documentary, “Women Behind the Camera,” it’s streaming from November 10-16 as part of the National Gallery of Art’s show, “The New Woman Behind the Camera.” (It has a section on safety issues and may be worth reexamining how these pioneer camerawomen tackled these and other problems in views of the recent tragic loss of Director of Photography Halyna Hutchins, RIP.)
Interesting…. not enough stories with good female leads…If there is a
actress or director interested in a story of a woman saving the lives of
her community in a post Civil War drama, please let me know…
