Jonathan Demme’s Last Project, ‘Shots Fired,’ Airs Tonight — Remembering His Best TV Work

9 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jonathan Demme’s films, including “The Silence of the Lambs” and “Philadelphia,” won Oscars, earned worldwide acclaim, and influenced countless filmmakers. But his efforts on the small screen were anything but small in comparison. Over the course of nearly 40 years in TV, Demme directed, wrote, and produced an impressive array of genres and worked with artists like Laura Dern, Peter Falk, Elliot Gould, Patrick Wilson, Aisha Hinds, and Helen Hunt.

Demme died Wednesday morning in New York at the age of 73. The cause was esophageal cancer and complications from heart disease, according to a source close to the family. He was originally treated for the disease in 2010, but suffered from a recurrence in 2015, and his condition deteriorated in recent weeks.

Wonder Woman director on what she’d like to see in the sequel

23 April 2017 3:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In less than six weeks, Wonder Woman will make her solo big screen debut as Warner Bros. unleashes the next chapter of the DC Extended Universe. The film is tracking a solid $80 million plus domestic opening, and it seems that Patty Jenkins is now turning her eye towards a sequel, with the director talking to The Toronto Sun about what she’d like to see in the Amazon Princess’ second solo outing.

“I’m excited for her to come to America and become the Wonder Woman we are all familiar with from having grown up around her as an American superhero,” said Jenkins. “I’d like to bring her a little farther along into the future and have a fun, exciting storyline that is its own thing. Wonder Woman 1 is so much about her becoming the person she is. I can’t wait to spring forward with who she is »

‘House of Cards’ Season 5: Frank and Claire Are United in Making Terror

21 April 2017 5:46 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

President Underwood and his First Lady have a mission, and woe to those who get in their way.

When last we left “House of Cards,” Frank (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin Wright) were by each other’s side in their mission to combat terrorism, specifically the radical Islamist group known as the Islamic Caliphate Organization (Ico), which had broadcast an execution of a hostage.

“That’s right. We don’t submit to terror. We make the terror,” Frank said with his disturbingly unwavering yet charismatic gaze into the camera.

Of course, this war on terror is a noisy, splashy diversion from an incriminating article that laid out the president’s corruption. How successful they are remains to be seen, but we have a feeling that no matter what, they’ll be fine in Season 5. In an interview with EW, »

‘Wonder Woman’ Director Patty Jenkins Says Superheroes Are Universal In Exclusive Video — Watch

13 April 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Warner Brothers’ hotly anticipated “Wonder Woman” hits theaters on June 2, it will not only be a landmark moment for female superheroes, but also for female directors like Patty Jenkins, who told DC All Access that she always saw herself as Superman.

Audiences have been familiar with Jenkins ever since she wrote and directed “Monster” (2003), which starred Charlize Theron in a career-defining turn as serial killer Aileen Wuornos, for which she won an Academy Award. More recently, Jenkins has directed for television show like “The Killing,” “Arrested Development,” and “Entourage.” “Wonder Woman” marks a giant step up for Jenkins, as well as female directors who rarely get offered blockbusters.

Guest Post: A Summary of the Inaugural Women’s Media Summit

10 April 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

The Inaugural Women’s Media Summit

Guest Post by Maria Giese

On March 31, 2017, 114 women gathered in Provincetown, Massachusetts for the inaugural Women’s Media Summit, a three-day think-tank forum designed to solve gender inequity in U.S. entertainment media. The event was produced by veteran film producer Christine Walker, and was co-chaired by Dr. Caroline Heldman (Occidental professor and principal researcher at the Geena Davis Institute for Gender in Media) and myself.

The concept of Summit was based on a core belief that the stories and images that emerge from our media help define our national ethos and contribute to the voice of our civilization. The exclusion of women as contributors to our nation’s cultural narrative is a deeply entrenched problem. Women’s creative expressions and concerns are filtered through a mostly male lens, denying women of freedom and equality.

In May 2015, the Aclu called on our federal government to investigate discrimination against women directors in Hollywood. The intent of the Summit was to remedy this persistent and staggering problem that has been in the media spotlight for nearly two years. Today the Eeoc is reportedly in settlement talks with all six major Hollywood studios, but that is no guarantee of success. In order to keep the momentum going and maintain control over our future, we decided to assemble as a group to brainstorm strategies that we ourselves can put into action going forward.

The Summit included three panels and a legal presentation that were designed to ignite dynamic, out of the box thinking for fresh and imaginative solutions. We sought to provide a foundation of knowledge for the whole assembly, and then to encourage exploration beyond our established assumptions, value systems, and methods of getting things done. We were not looking for a single solution, but rather a wide array of remedies that could include grassroots and media campaigns, programs, and incentives inside the industry, as well as state and federal legislative reform.

On the first day we gathered to meet each other and offered two talks to help inform our participants. Constitutional Law expert Dr. David Adler discussed the landmark and unanimous Supreme Court decision on Reed v. Reed (1971), which was the first time in American history a statute was struck down on the grounds that gender discrimination violates the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment. This ruling opened what Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg characterized as the “floodgates” for all of the subsequent decisions that have upheld women’s rights to equal protection under the law.

After that, America’s great experimental feature film director and Cal Arts professor Nina Menkes presented “Gender and Power in Shot Design: Traditional Cinema and Beyond,” a detailed analysis of film clips from a variety of popular movies showing both the obvious and subtle ways that women are often disempowered in blockbuster films directed by men. By way of extreme contrast, Menkes also shared and discussed clips from her own work.

In the evening, I introduced Victoria Hochberg, one of “The Original Six,” whose activism and research led to the groundbreaking 1983–1985 class action lawsuit against several Hollywood studios filed by the Directors Guild of America on behalf of women and minority directors. That lawsuit moved the percentage of female director hires from half of one percent to 16 percent in just 10 years from 1985 to 1995. Hochberg spoke about the struggle women have faced throughout American history and expressed the importance of our continued battle.

The following morning we began the day with three panels inspired by a Barack Obama quote: “Show up. Dig in. Stay at it.” The first panel was entitled “Women Storytellers Missing in American Cinema” and was moderated by Dr. David Adler (President, Alturas Institute). Attorney Dr. Kathleen A. Tarr (Stanford) and I served as panelists. We provided an overview of the many barriers that keep women directors shut out of the profession, including the failure of Title VII enforcement in an industry that blacklists people who speak out.

Panel two was entitled “Women Storytellers Missing on the Small Screen” and described the landscape of women in key storytelling positions in TV, commercials, and new media. This panel was moderated by producer/director Jody Hassett-Sanchez (CNN, ABC) and included panelists Kirsten Schaffer (Women In Film La) and Maria Agui Carter (Producer-In-Residence, Emerson College). They discussed how increased attention on women in Hollywood has resulted in the proliferation of wide-scale efforts to remedy the problem inside the industry. Women In Film has been integral to a multitude of cooperative efforts with many indie and studio programs intent in solving the problem from the inside, including ReFrame. Others, like Dr. Martha Lauzen (Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film), suggest external (government) pressure is required.

Panel three focused on “Female Representations on the Screen” and was moderated by Dr. Caroline Heldman (Gdigm & Occidental College) with panelists Cristina Escobar (The Representation Project) and Robin Wright (Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity). The purpose of this panel was to identify why women are persistently underrepresented and misrepresented in film, television, and other media domains despite nearly five decades of research and activism on this problem.

Finally, Gillian Thomas (Aclu Women’s Rights Project) and Kalpana Kotagal (Attorney, Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll) gave a presentation to provide a framework for action entitled “Women, the Industry & the Law.” This fascinating overview described prior efforts to address discrimination against women in Hollywood, and the current prospects for reform. The session included a primer on federal and state law, as well as discussion of possible tools for effecting change — including litigation, government tax credits for diverse hiring, and media outreach.

Thomas and Kotagal also explained the origins of the Aclu’s 2015 letter to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission calling for a federal investigation into discrimination against women directors, the current status of that effort, and potential outcomes. This presentation set the stage for possible legal remedies for discrimination, and provided a frame for brainstorming the most effective advocacy strategies during the breakout discussions.

The heart of the Summit was the “Working Group Sessions” in which the whole assembly broke out into nine groups of about 12 participants including a facilitator and a scribe. These sessions were held at various Provincetown inns and venues and lasted approximately three to four hours. Each group was assigned to come up with five or so proposals to create immediately actionable solutions to gender inequity in Hollywood and the proposals could include anything. Massachusetts State Rep. Paul Heroux was on hand for two of the groups, and each group included a lawyer and representatives from a multitude of sectors of society, including law, government, business, tech, non-profit, the arts, news media, entertainment media, and others.

That evening, producer Rachel Watanabe-Batton introduced the 25th Anniversary Restoration of Julie Dash’s 1991 masterpiece film, “Daughters of the Dust,” which was the first feature film directed by an African American woman that went into wide release.

On Sunday morning each working group took the stage at our Summit Headquarters and presented the results of their breakout session. An expert facilitator, Marijean Lauzier, led the entire assembly in a wrapping-up session in which the more than 45 different proposals were pared down to seven resolutions that the Women’s Media Summit will pursue and put into action immediately. The results of all the sessions are to be published in a “white paper” document and presented to the public in June.

The crowning event of the entire Summit was a profoundly moving and transformative Keynote Speech by actor Alysia Reiner (“Equity,” “Orange Is the New Black”). Chief among many other inspiring messages in Reiner’s speech was the lesson that each one of us possesses the ability to create and recreate our own personal narratives. Just as we women as a collective must take possession of our stories that make up our cultural narrative, we must also do that for ourselves, in our own lives, on a daily basis.

On a last note, Summit participants will never forget Victoria Hochberg’s amazing observation that First Lady Abigail Adams’ famous 1776 letter counseling her husband, President John Adams, “do not forget the ladies” as he helped pen the U.S. Constitution shared the very same date as our inaugural Women’s Media Summit opening — March 31! Coincidence? You tell me.

See you next year at the 2018 Annual Women’s Media Summit in Provincetown, Massachusetts. In the meantime, check out these suggested readings. We won’t give up until the problem is solved!

Maria Giese wrote and directed the 1996 feature film “When Saturday Comes,” starring Sean Bean and Pete Postlethwaite, and the award-winning digital feature film “Hunger,” based on the novel by Nobel Prize-winner Knut Hamsun. She has also directed two Cine Gold Eagle winning short films and has written three screenplays which have been produced into feature films.

In 2011 she turned her attention to the underrepresentation of women directors in United States media. She began researching and writing about viable legal strategies to remediate illegal discrimination against women in Hollywood, citing Title VII. Finally, in 2015, after four years of activism in the Directors Guild of America, Giese became the person who instigated the biggest industry-wide federal investigation for women directors in Hollywood history.

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins on working within the established DC Extended Universe

9 April 2017 7:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re just a couple of months away from the release of Wonder Woman, the fourth entry in the DC Extended Universe, and the first female-led superhero movie from Warner Bros. and DC Films.

During an interview with Empire, director Patty Jenkins has been discussing how she found working within the confines of the shared universe already established by Zack Snyder in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

“I didn’t get to choose [Gadot], but boy was I relieved once I realized who she was,” said Jenkins. “That is like a make it or break it thing, who plays these characters. So when I first heard Zack Snyder has cast somebody as Wonder Woman, a movie I had wanted to make for a long time, I was cautious. But then, oh my God, they couldn’t have found anybody better in the whole wide world. Just look »

Wonder Woman projected for $83 million domestic opening, lowest of the Dceu so far

8 April 2017 5:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re two months away from the premiere of Warner Bros. and DC Films’ latest offering Wonder Woman, and now the first early box office predictions for the Gal Gadot-headlined solo movie are in, projecting an $83 million domestic opening for the fourth instalment of the DC Extended Universe, and a total domestic haul of $225 million.

Should the prediction prove accurate, would open with the lowest weekend of the Dceu to date behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($166 million), Suicide Squad ($133.6 million) and Man of Steel ($116.6 million).

In fairness, Wonder Woman will face some stiff competition at the box office – it opens between Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and The Mummy – and an opening north of $80 million is certainly solid. Plus, as we’ve seen on countless occasions, box office tracking is rarely accurate, with movies regularly exceeding their projections.
