Half the Picture

Wednesday, August 1, 2018, 2 pm and 7:30 pm
Location: Sinnott Family - Bank of Utica Auditorium
Additional Dates

Directed by Amy Adrion, 2018, United States, Not Rated, 94 min.

Half the Picture celebrates the groundbreaking work of female film directors and investigates the systemic discrimination that has, for decades, denied opportunities to far too many talented women in Hollywood. The film consists of interviews with high profile women directors including Ava DuVernay, Jill Soloway, Lena Dunham, Catherine Hardwicke and Miranda July, among many others, who discuss their early careers, how they transitioned to studio films or television, how they balance having a demanding directing career with family, as well as challenges and joys along the way. Added to this are interviews with experts about gender inequality in Hollywood that establish the magnitude of this employment discrimination issue as women are shut out, across the board, of an industry that systemically denies their expression and point of view.
