In this timely follow-up to his documentary Casting By (RR ‘13) Tom Donahue explores systemic sexism in Hollywood through the voices of many marquee celebrities, including Geena Davis, Meryl Streep, Sandra Oh, Jessica Chastain, and other ambassadors of the #TimesUp movement. The gender gap has become an urgent topic in recent years. Audiences will be amazed by the film’s wealth of compelling evidence and anecdotes. Executive Producer Geena Davis (Thelma and Louise) has led groundbreaking research into Hollywood’s portrayal of women through her Institute. As the film makes plain, Hollywood has been a powerful force in shaping negative gender roles for over a century. Now the industry can play a positive role in recasting those roles for a better future.
This film will be preceded by the short documentary Moments of Truth, a montage comprised of moments from significant documentaries of the past 100 years, which was directed by 2018 RiverRun Master of Cinema honoree Chuck Workman.
