Leonine Films celebrates International Women’s Day!

Not only do female filmmakers, writers, and producers give new perspectives and radical narratives, but they also give voice to the voiceless, turn that gaze around, and push formal innovation. I hope for their increased collective visibility, longevity and global influence!

Shout outs to:
Sofia Coppola, who makes the most of stillness
Sally Potter, for her rigor
Agnès Varda, who takes her time
Christine Vachon, for her bad-assery
Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, who elevates the art of writing
Claire Denis, who makes me uncomfortable
and Mira Nair, who gives us joy;

Honorary shout-outs to:
Almodóvar, for whom funny is the only sexy
Ang Lee, for his respectful distance
and George Cukor, for championing the witty women.
