French women directors who "could make it" in Hollywood
The New York Magazine recently published a list of 100 female directors who could be hired in Hollywood... if Hollywood were less male-dominated. Six French directors feature in the list.
Whether veterans or promising newcomers in world cinema, these 100 women could be leading figures in Hollywood, except that they're not, as explained in the article in the New York Magazine. According to the article, the excuse offered by Hollywood executives is that there just aren't enough highly-talented female directors. This view is dismissed 100 times over, proving that everything is a question of perspective. The list notably features six French directors: Marjane Satrapi, Julie Delpy, Claire Denis, Anne Fontaine, Mia Hansen-Løve, and Alice Winocour. All six have successfully established their own styles, viewpoints, with their films regularly selected at festivals across the globe.
