18June08: The FF2 Week in Review by Jan Lisa Huttner

From Jan Lisa Huttner (Editor-in-Chief of FF2 Media)

Six films either written &/or directed by women filmmakers opened in Manhattan theatres this week:

  • Half the Picture
  • Middleground
  • Nancy
  • Ocean's 8
  • The Valley
  • Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist

Of these six, so far I seen three. Two -- Half the Picture and Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist -- are docs. One -- Middleground --is a narrative feature.

My Top Pick for June 8th (drumroll please) is Half the Picture, Amy Adrion's superlative exploration of the ongoing gender imbalance on worldwide movie screens.
