This Changes EverythingTom Donahue
Hollywood is a perfect microcosm that can hold a mirror to our society. That mirror is not always flattering. This Changes Everything reveals how gender inequality is firmly embedded in the film industry. It is still a man's world, where women have to fight hard for their place. And it used to be so different: in the period of silent films, most directors were women. What has changed? Why? And what can be done about it?
A whole series of prominent women - actresses, directors, technicians - discuss and outline a sobering picture of gender inequality in Hollywood in this documentary. Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Gillian Anderson and many other women make their voices heard. This Changes Everything is critical, loud, but also practical and hopeful. Without blind hostility but with passionate perseverance, this film refutes every argument for existing gender inequality.
