A Must See Documentary
10 June 2018 | by terrybrackettSee all my reviews

This film played at Through Women's Eyes International Film Festival in Sarasota, Florida, as well as at the Sarasota Film Festival. At TWE it played to a sold out audience and was incredibly well received.

The film accurately and carefully documents the difficulty faced women directors. No surprise really, but still shocking in 2018. This is film which should be seen by every woman interested in film, whether you are in the film industry or a devoted movie goer.

Through Women's Eyes can recommend this film without hesitation!!!
