HALF THE PICTURE is a documentary about the dismal number of women directors working in Hollywood, using the current EEOC investigation into discriminatory hiring practices as a framework to talk to successful women directors about their career paths, struggles, inspiration and hopes for the future.
An important piece of testimony in the fight for the civil rights of female directors in Hollywood.Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times
Even though so much of what this film has to say is so ingrained in me already, I still found myself being surprised.April Wolfe, TheWrap
Authoritative and insightful, this essential film gives much needed cultural breathing room to some remarkable Hollywood women to discuss how they are undermined or shut out entirely from the industry.MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
