Women Filmmakers Tell Their Own Stories


And the Oscar goes to... a guy.  Men still get most of the attention in the movie industry behind the camera, but it's not for lack of effort by women. 

They've been cranking out quality work since the beginning of the industry.  Many of today's independent producers tell their own stories in the book Independent Female Filmmakers: A Chronicle through Interviews, Profiles, and Manifestos

Michele Meek collected the independents' writings as the editor of the project.  She is our guest.
