A Breath of Fresh Air

In the era of #MeeToo and conversations about diversity in Hollywood, this podcast is a much needed voice in the conversation about women filmmakers. Not only is Marquette Jones building on the conversation about Women filmmakers, she is creating an intentional space to center women's voices. Similar to Ava Duvernay, rather than simply give us lip service about women directors and dirersity she is walking the walk.
