Doc NYC 2017 Women Directors: Meet Jessica Wolfson — “Hot Grease”

Hot Grease

Jessica Wolfson has created award-winning media content for Espn 9 for IX, MTV, Conde Nast, Nyu, Canon, and many nonprofit organizations. At IFCtv Original Programming, she developed and produced documentaries including “This Film Is Not Yet Rated” by Kirby Dick and “Wanderlust” by Bob Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman. Wolfson directed and produced the award winning “Radio Unnameable,” named “Top 10 Films of 2012” by the New York Daily News.

Hot Grease” will premiere at the 2017 Doc NYC film festival on November 12. The film is co-directed by Paul Lovelace and Sam Wainwright Douglas.

W&H: Describe the film for us in your own words.

Jw: Set in Houston, Texas in the shadow of the nation’s oil industry, “Hot Grease” tells the surprising story of how the bio-diesel industry is turning an ostensibly worthless raw material — spent kitchen grease — into a green energy source capable of fueling all of the trains, ships, and trucks throughout the country — if it can overcome the powerful forces working against it.

Featuring innovators, entrepreneurs, grease collectors, and supporters like Senator Al Franken, “Hot Grease” follows the battle for bio-diesel's future and it’s very survival.

W&H: What drew you to this story?

Jw: The film was inspired by a 2015 New Yorker magazine article by John Colapinto also called “Hot Grease” about the underground world of used cooking oil and the theft that has become an increasing problem since the rise of biodiesel.

Prior to that bio-diesel was not on my radar. I was familiar with it like many people were — hippies filling their old Mercedes with french fry oil, and Willie Nelson and Neil Young running their tour buses on it. It sounded like a great idea but not something I realized could make a significant impact on our fuel stream and to helping control climate change.

W&H: What do you want people to think about when they are leaving the theater?

Jw: We hope “Hot Grease” is able to educate and perhaps inspire those, who like us, had heard of biodiesel but didn’t know what it was or how much good it can do. Also it’s important to understand that the only way to diversify our nation’s fuel supply with renewable and alternative fuels is to have increased governmental support.

There is so much potential and opportunity for all forms of renewable energy to be incorporated into our fuel and energy sectors to help reduce carbon emissions and control the increasingly adverse effects of climate change. We are at a pivotal moment in history to take those steps to become innovators, change-makers, and to make this a priority for our industries and lawmakers.

W&H: What was the biggest challenge in making the film?

Jw: The biggest challenge in making “Hot Grease” was to try to explain the Renewable Fuel Standard (Rfs) in a concise and interesting way. The Rfs mandates the amount of bio-diesel that needs to be blended into our diesel fuel supply. It is a complicated law and boiling it down simply was a challenge.

W&H: How did you get your film funded? Share some insights into how you got the film made.

Jw: “Hot Grease” was funded by Discovery Channel for their Impact Discovery strand and will air November 16 on the network.

W&H: What does it mean for you to have your film play at Doc NYC?

Jw: Doc NYC is a great festival. I have produced several films that have played here over the years. As a New Yorker it is an honor and thrill to be able to premiere my work in my hometown and to share it with my friends and family.

W&H: What’s the best and worst advice you’ve received?

Jw: The best advice I got was when I was just starting out in my career. It was to reach out to filmmakers whose work you admire and talk to them about their process. That seems like an intimidating prospect but what you’ll find is that people love to talk about themselves and when you are interested in them, they often will open up, and be very generous with their time.

W&H: What advice do you have for other female directors?

Jw: My advice for female directors is to surround yourself with a strong support team and to find collaborators that you trust and are inspired by. I have had the great fortune to work with an amazing team on this project including my co-directors Paul Lovelace and Sam Wainwright Douglas, who happen to be my husband and one of my oldest friends.

W&H: Name your favorite woman-directed film and why.

Jw: I don’t have one particular film that is my favorite but I’m a big fan of the work of Claire Denis, Sofia Coppola, and Agnès Varda. They each have clear voices and cinematic visions that I respect and admire.

W&H: There have been significant conversations over the last couple of years about increasing the amount of opportunities for women directors yet the numbers have not increased. Are you optimistic about the possibilities for change? Share any thoughts you might have on this topic.

Jw: I very much hope that the culture of the film industry will change and there will be more opportunities for women, not just as directors but as producers, cinematographers, editors, and in crew positions. But the only way this will happen is for people to make a conscious effort to hire these talented women in these positions and for younger women to be encouraged to pursue these careers.

We can’t wait around for policies to change — we have to change them ourselves from inside the industry.

Weinstein Co. to Protest MPAA “R” Rating for Transgender Drama “3 Generations”

“3 Generations”

Gaby Dellal’s “3 Generations” continues to make headlines. This time around, the upcoming transgender drama is in the news because it has been assigned an “R” rating by the MPAA for “language including some sexual references” — and The Weinstein Company (TWC) is challenging the classification.

A press release from TWC reveals that they’ve “enlisted the help of top Hollywood lawyer David Boies to advise on their dissent. Largely known for his pivotal role to overturn Proposition 8, California’s discriminatory ban on gay marriage, back in 2009, Boies has consulted on numerous human rights issues for TWC including censorship of the Academy Award-nominated film ‘Carol,’ as well as a previous protest of the MPAA’s rating of the documentary ‘Bully.’ Initially given an ‘R’ rating for similar reasons, TWC successfully challenged the MPAA and brought ‘Bully’s’ rating down to PG-13, making it more accessible for the intended audience.”

Written by Dellal and Nikole Beckwith, the intergenerational story stars Elle Fanning, Naomi Watts, and Susan Sarandon. Fanning plays Ray, a trans teen, and Watts and Sarandon play his mother and grandmother, respectively. The project has been met with mixed feelings since it was announced. As encouraging as it is to see trans characters represented, many people are — very understandably — angered and frustrated by a cis-gender actress playing the role of a trans boy.

Following a poor reception at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, TWC removed “3 Generations,” formerly known as “About Ray,” from its release schedule. The film had been due for release in just a few days. The company originally claimed that they were delaying its release so “3 Generations” could have an Oscars-qualifying run in theaters. That plan never came to fruition.

As the film’s official synopsis details, “3 Generations” follows the journey Ray, his mother, and grandmother go on “as each confronts their own identity and learns to embrace change while ultimately finding acceptance and understanding.” This is a great message to send audiences — especially teens. Plus, we caught the film at Tiff, and the “R” rating is really unwarranted. Teens can handle some cursing and sexual references. Most of them are having sex. Consider the level of violence in some movies that escape the “R” rating. If you’ve seen the 2006 doc “This Film Is Not Yet Rated,” you know that the MPAA’s decision-making process is highly questionable, and tends to skew super-conservative.

Watts, who is also one of the “3 Generations’” executive producers, commented, “This film is a beautiful and touching story about family and identity. It is important for teenagers to see it and the ‘R’ Rating doesn’t reflect today’s society.” She continued, “‘3 Generations’ doesn’t have a bad bone in its body, it’s an expression of love, acceptance, strength, and honesty, values that could not be more necessary right now.”

“‘3 Generations’ is an important movie for everyone to see, especially transgender youth who are feeling isolated or fearful and their families,” Sarandon added. “It’s ridiculous to have an ‘R’ rating which would prevent this audience from seeing the film.”

Dellal commented, “As a mother and a filmmaker, I want to speak to kids, to parents, and to grandparents everywhere in a common language of love and inclusion about a subject matter that is not only real and complicated, but one that is important and alive today. There are kids all over this country that are still too fearful to speak out and to step out; they’re too alone to fight, lacking the kinds of support that would let them feel free to be themselves. Our story wants to humanize this family experience, and to take the mystery out of the secrets. I hope the MPAA will reconsider this ‘R’ rating and encourage children to see this story and feel connected.”

“3 Generations” will open the Bentonville Film Festival May 2. The film hits theaters May 19.

What Is the Most Ridiculous Sex Scene From a Movie? — IndieWire Critics Survey

  • Indiewire
What Is the Most Ridiculous Sex Scene From a Movie? — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In dubious honor of “Fifty Shades Darker,” what is the most ridiculous sex scene from a movie?

Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC), Vulture/Film Comment

I’m sure others will easily top this, but I always think of Sylvester Stallone and Sharon Stone in the terrible 1994 action film “The Specialist,” having laboriously glossy, oiled, carefully pube-concealing, solemn, positionally exhausting intercourse while mouthing tedious expository dialogue in a shower that appears to be the size of a studio apartment. The 90s were a boom time for bad movie sex, and this is Hall of Fame level in that so much money, time and effort has gone

‘Cameraperson’ review : “A unique and captivating visual memoir…”

Cameraperson review: The critically acclaimed documentary arrives on UK soil following an impressive debut at Sundance 2016.

Read our Cameraperson review below.

You may not know the name Kirsten Johnson, but you may very well have engaged with her work without realising. Johnson has been a cinematographer on many outstanding documentaries of recent years including Citizenfour and This Film is Not Yet Rated. She has demonstrated an incredibly keen eye over her years as a cinematographer, seemingly as awed by her subjects as we the viewer are. Her vast body of work is what makes up the crux of her latest feature Cameraperson. Here she has constructed visual memoir comprised of outtakes and snippets of unused footage from across the films of her career. It is a documentary that proves to be as profound and as stimulating as any of her esteemed career highlights.

Joshua Reviews Kirsten Johnson’s Cameraperson [Theatrical Review]

  • CriterionCast
Usually the home for the latest and greatest in classic, arthouse and foreign language film restorations, distributors Janus Films have become as much known for their painstaking work in restoring and subsequently distributing classic films as they have been for their connection to The Criterion Collection. Offering a direct route from big to small screen, Janus has also turned the rare new release acquisition into something truly special. Taking on far fewer new release films a year than even the smallest of independent distributor, the Janus stamp is one of quality and curation.

However, in the case of Kirsten Johnson’s Cameraperson, even that doesn’t seem to do it the justice it so rightly deserves.

Best known as a documentary cinematographer, with films like Citizenfour and Fahrenheit 9/11 to her name, Johnson has become one of non-fiction cinema’s most lauded photographers. With an uncanny ability to shoot films as

Mike Birbiglia’s ‘Thank God For Jokes’ (Likely) Headed To Netflix & 8 Other Ama Reveals
Occasioned by the recent release of “Don’t Think Twice,” Mike Birbiglia took to reddit for an Ama yesterday. The biggest reveal is that he’ll (hopefully) be filming a performance from his “Thank God for Jokes” tour for Netflix, though the comedian/actor/filmmaker had plenty else to say as well:

On the interplay between sadness and comedy: “I’m just trying to dig into the sadness and hopefully find some comedy so that hopefully you can too. I mean, that’s the goal. I’m doing my best.”

On people pronouncing his name wrong: “People keep telling me that local NPR ads for Don’T Think Twice keep saying ‘Mike Ber-Beehl-ia’s movie…’ etc. I think some names are never meant to be learned. Sincerely, Mike Birbigilbug”

Watch: First Trailer for Kirsten Johnson's Powerful Doc 'Cameraperson'

"A transcendent documentary experience..." Janus Films has debuted the official trailer for an outstanding documentary called Cameraperson, a very unique cinematic experience compiling the 25-year career of cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. Johnson has been working as a cinematographer for documentaries for a long time, working on projects including Citizenfour, Where to Invade Next, The Invisible War, This Film Is Not Yet Rated, Fahrenheit 9/11 and many others. To make this film, she compiled various bits and pieces of footage from all of her projects and edited them together with a very vague narrative. I luckily had the chance to see this doc and it's incredible - a deeply visceral experience. I felt every emotion watching it, from happiness to fear to sadness to joy to disgust, and was amazed by the film she created. Don't miss this. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Kirsten Johnson's doc Cameraperson, direct from Vimeo: A boxing match in Brooklyn.

Shame on the MPAA

  • Hitfix
Shame on the MPAA
Suicide Squad has been rated PG-13 for "sequences of violence and action throughout, disturbing behavior, suggestive content and language," which is an extremely generalized reading of what we actually see on screen. Personally, I would have added "gratuitous sequences of gun violence that make shooting look fun, with a tendency to desensitize viewers of all ages" somewhere in the mix. But that's just me. As chronicled in the 2006 documentary This Film Is Not Yet Rated, the Motion Picture Association of American (MPAA)'s ratings board is a shadowy group that rates films based on the opinions of a group of members about whom very little is known. One of the main critiques of the board is that it tends to be much harsher on depictions of sex than it is on depictions of violence, a bizarre standard that has been demonstrated many times over in the form of big-budget studio

Newswire: Mike Birbiglia had some “foul language” for the MPAA over its Suicide Squad rating

  • The AV Club
Is there any organization with more power over Hollywood, and less respect from the people whose destinies it controls, than the Motion Picture Association Of America? The MPAA’s content ratings have huge implications on movies’ box office receipts, but often seem almost willfully out of step with the actual content they’re meant to label and protect younger audiences from.

Directors have been arguing with the MPAA for years, from Kevin Smith arguing for his right to show cartoon scrotums, to The Invisible War director Kirby Dick’s feature-length takedown, This Film Is Not Yet Rated. The latest gladiator to wade into the surprisingly bloody (but sex-free) arena of arguing with the MPAA? Comedian and director Mike Birbiglia, who hopped onto Twitter today to compare and contrast the association’s treatment of his recent film, the improv dramedy Don’t Think Twice, and David Ayers’ just-released violence orgasm Suicide

Sundance: How 'Cameraperson' Filmmaker Kirsten Johnson Found Herself in Her Own Documentary

Until, that is, she decided to make "Cameraperson," a bold documentary that functions as both an overview of Johnson's professional life and a probing look inside her own personal experiences. Partially a cinematic collage of some of Johnson's most essential pieces of work, the film uses both old and new material to provide a touching and complex look at the person behind the camera, before finally pulling her clearly into frame.

TV Review: ‘Chelsea Does’

TV Review: ‘Chelsea Does’
Chelsea Does,” a group of four documentaries examining different topics, works best when its host, Chelsea Handler, stops doing and simply listens. The series can’t quite decide if it’s an exercise in image management for its star or an in-depth examination of whatever subject is under the microscope, and that indecision ends up giving much of the endeavor a self-indulgent and superficial tone. Occasionally, “Chelsea Does” is both rigorous and curious and uses its star’s comedic talents to judiciously probe difficult subjects, but those moments aren’t as frequent as one might hope.

Put simply, “Chelsea Does” contains a lot of filler, much of which reaffirms the self-congratulatory myopia and cluelessness that afflicts much of America and certainly Hollywood as well.

Viewers would likely be best off skipping the first half of the second documentary, “Chelsea Does Racism.” There’s no better demonstration of condescending obliviousness than
