starkid99 said: I saw your video on women in film and resented some of the comments made. Yes women may not be getting a fair go but it's also down to the fact that there just aren't enough women trying. Films made by men are going to be told through the eyes of a male protagonist because that's what the directors vision is and he can't help that. Just the same as films directed by women will feature strong women leads (Zero Dark Thirty) but I honestly think that women have never been stronger in films.
I’m sorry, this ask sounds like a certain conclusion in a certain episode of a certain youtube documentary. It is not that there aren’t enough women trying. There are SO MANY WOMEN TRYING. There are SO MANY WOMEN DOING AMAZING WORK. But they do not have the support or even the equal playing field of the working environment in which they are trying to operate. You just have to read the comments of the video to see that.
this. EXACTLY THIS. There are plenty of women trying, and of those that are ‘succeeding’ they’re not all making films with strong women leads - if you’re going to talk Zero Dark Thirty, you’re talking about Kathryn Bigelow who directed The Hurt Locker and Point Break. Not exactly films featuring the strong female lead trope.
Female stories shouldn’t be up to female creators, because they are human stories.
On one hand, women are told that the opportunities are there if we really wanted them or if we really tried. On the other hand we are told that we are only allowed to tell one very narrow type of story, that is, stories of female triumph, and it doesn’t matter if we tell the greatest story of female triumph, because a film that tells that story makes no money anyway.
And those women who break the mold, those who tell stories that people wouldn’t expect to be told by a ‘female filmmaker’ - well no one even remembers that it was a film made by a woman.
