Fuck Yeah Girls On Film

appreciation of girls and women as actresses, directors, viewers, cinematographers, screenwriters, composers, producers, costume designers, and muses
as heroines, bitches, vilenesses, sisters, warriors, witches, daughters, lovers, sidekicks, champions, ladies, mothers, and as all of our other silver screen incarnations that reflect the diversity and complexity of a gender.

To Kathryn Bigelow, my director, I can’t help but compare my character of Maya to you, to powerful fearless women that allow their expert work to stand before them.  You have said before that filmmaking for you is not about breaking gender roles, but when you make a film that allows a character to disobey the conventions of Hollywood, you’ve done more for women in cinema than you take credit for.
