hey, I'm ashamed to say I don't really know any female directors apart from Sofia Coppola. who should I check out?

it seems the basic list of women directors is: kathryn bigelow, jane campion, and sofia coppola. there are SO MANY MORE, yet those are always the three that people first come up with (if any) when asked to name a woman director. however, in addition to those three, i would also suggest:

  • allison anders
  • deepa mehta
  • jamie babbit
  • catherine hardwicke (ignoRE twilight okay it was a fluke all of her other stuff is really good)
  • lana wachowski
  • lucrecia martel
  • amma asante
  • celine sciamma
  • mary harron

reminder that the matrix trilogy was written and directed by a trans woman (lana wachowski) along with her brother

one of the most influential and iconic sci fi movies was created by a trans woman and MORE PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS!! lana wachowski is a babe and an inspiration, one of the few female directors in hollywood as well as one of the few transgender people in hollywood.

First trailer for the new Wachowski movie, “Jupiter Ascending.”

IT BASICALLY LOOKS LIKE A STAR WARS MOVIE WITH MILA KUNIS AS A JANITOR WHO BECOMES A SPACE PRINCESS?? PLUS CHANNING TATUM IN RIDONKULOUS EYELINER WITH A DYED GOATEE? AND SEAN BEAN. AND *EDDIE REDMAYNE* AS SOME KIND OF HILARIOUS BRITISH-ALIEN GOTH SUPERVILLAIN.

PUT THIS ALL IN MY EYEBALLS AT ONCE.
